“Live the life you’ve dreamed.” – Henry David Thoreau
How you market your art has everything to do with how you live your life as an artist.
You will enjoy your best life as an artist when you know what you want is possible, and have a plan to match your reality to your dreams.
The AMTP focus is making connections, leveraging micro-influencing, mastering art marketing skills, and encouraging artists to learn about themselves to know how much marketing, connections, and influence they need to succeed.
How to sell your art & live your artist's life — your dream — your way.
AMTP membership opens the door to affordable world-class art marketing knowledge, making it a superb value for artists. Above all, the greatest benefit is the inspiration for members to live their best artist's lives on their terms. Together, these things make experiencing a well-lived, joyful artist's life possible.
As an AMTP member, you get access to the group's extensive resources to learn the best ways to sell your art. And you'll work on how to plan a rewarding life that balances competing art-life, dream-work demands. You'll get ideas and suggestions on how to market your art to match your needs.
With reliable information, you can make intelligent decisions about using the tools and techniques found in the AMTP library that are the best for your life and art business goals.
I seek to motivate artists to achieve their unique dreams with realistic plans. - Barney Davey
Five Reasons to Become an AMTP Member.

2) You will learn art marketing concepts and choose the tools and strategies best for you.
3) It’s so affordable you have virtually nothing to lose and so much to gain.

Priced to make an enjoyable artist's life possible for all.
Because I believe no artist should be left behind. And because I can afford to be generous at my time in life, the art business has been good to me for more than 30 years. The low fee is my way of giving back and helping as many artists as possible to learn about art marketing and how to live their best artists' lives. I've kept the cost down to make this training available for artists from around the globe, including many who may have modest means. It's working. We have members from all over North America, Eastern and Western Europe, New Zealand, Australia, and more.
Any artist will benefit from their AMTP membership. You will enjoy a friendly, supportive environment in our private Facebook group. The expert art marketing insights you receive come with mindful advice on if they apply to your art business and how to implement them. We believe lasting success is best measured by the enjoyment you get from living your artist's life on your terms.
To keep it simple, everything is located in one place, which is the private Facebook group. As such, the group is the only place to access the videos, workbooks, and community discussions. Facebook is the easiest and least expensive way for me to help artists. The considerable free services it offers communities like the Art Marketing Toolkit Project are not available elsewhere.
"Best Life" has a different meaning for every artist. I believe it is a process where artists recognize what they want from making their art. And then they work on living in harmony with their choices to enjoy and experience their best artist's life as they wish. Peace of mind and joyful experiences as an artist happen when you realize you only need to live up to your expectations. You can read my in-depth perspective in The Artist's Life Manifesto.
The material comes from a combination of more than 30 years actively involved helping artists market their work, my six bestselling books on art marketing (soon to be seven), nearly 700 blog posts, and dozens of courses and video recordings I've produced and published over the years. It's as good as I can make it and on par with or better than any information you will find anywhere at any price. Here is a list of archived workbooks and live session recordings.

Every Friday late morning. An invite and reminder are sent weekly with any downloads or links for members to study.
Find everything under the Guides link inside the private Facebook group. That is why it is vital for you to join the group once you have become a paid member.
With members from around the globe who lead busy lives, it's not possible to attend live. That's why all live sessions are recorded and all workbooks are uploaded.
The grand vision is to make the world a little better by inspiring artists to live their dreams and share their art with humanity. I believe enabling artists to live in harmony with the creative life they choose is alchemy.

The long-range plan is turning the AMTP into a charitable trust that will perpetuate helping artists live their dreams and learn art marketing. The influence artists make on society is immeasurable. The program helps artists to live their lives as artists on their terms.
