Business for Artists

Raising the profile of professional artists and creative industries by educating artists on business basics

Forget the stereotype that artists are either “starving” or chasing success through fame. From photographers and painters to musicians and writers, artists around the globe pursue their passions and make a living doing what they love.

Start your Artist Business Plan. Design feasible plans and fruitful actions that will propel your artistic career forward.

What often goes unnoticed in the struggle to “make a living” from doing creative work is the responsibility to be both artist and entrepreneur.
Not only do you spend your energy and time developing your talents, finding inspiration, and working as an artist, but as a freelancer you are also required to run a business. Imagine!

Successful businesses make plans, set goals, and take action.
If you have expectations of having a successful career as a professional artist you will have to do the same.
As a small business, you, and only you, are the Artistic Director of your creative destiny.
