Online » What is it?
The Artist INC Online experience is based on the popular Artist INC live workshop series held several times a year in Kansas City. Just like the live workshop experience, Artist INC Online provides the tools necessary for working artists of all disciplines to learn and apply these business skills to their art practices: knowledge, mentoring and peer support.
Artist INC Online includes eight learning sessions designed to be completed weekly. Registration for Artist INC Online, however, gives participants six months to complete the sessions at their convenience, night or day.
|Each of the eight sessions focuses on a different skill set needed by artists in their business practices: |
- Strategic Planning
- Budgeting, Accounting and Taxes
- Writing About Your Work
- Legal Issues
- Grants and Bank Loans
- Making It All Work
|The sessions include a variety of activities to learn and apply the new skills: |
- Interactive video lessons
- Guided Internet exploration
- Related readings
- Action items including printable worksheets
| Mentoring |
Once artists have completed the Artist INC Online course, each will receive a one-on-one, 30-minute phone session with one of our experienced Artist Facilitators. Sessions can be used to address specific questions related to art business practices and/or discuss and clarify participants' goals.
|Peer Support |
|Through participation on the Artist INC Discussion Blog, artists can share their ideas and work, explore the ideas of other artists and connect with others for continuing support with their arts business practices. |
