Artist INC

Take control of your career, create opportunity, shape your future and strengthen your art practice . . .

Artist INC workshops take the mystery and fear out of the business end of a fine arts practice.  Through the use of fine arts specific content, peer-to-peer learning and artist mentoring, participating artists get the arts-specific techniques they can immediately use and the chance to practice and apply them with the support and guidance of other artists working through the same challenges. Developed for artists of all disciplines, visual artists, musicians, film makers, dancers, performers and writers come together for intensive work on the components of a viable and sustainable arts practice.

The successful traditional Artist INC workshop launched in 2009, has been completed by over 300 fine artists in the Kansas City area. The Artist INC Online workshop was introduced in 2011 to meet the needs of those artists unable to attend the traditional workshop due to constraints of geography or schedule. And, due to popular demand, Artist INC II arrived in the fall of 2012—an eight-week intensive bootcamp for traditional program alumni to each take a current project and work the business aspects of it from every angle.
