THERE IS JOY IN MAKING ART. WHY NOT EXPERIENCE IT WHEN MARKETING YOUR ART!
Life is harsh sometimes. Making art should be a joy and a refuge even when it's a business. How you perceive your art in business and how you go about getting your art to market should give you contentment as an artist and a business owner. That is a great way to live your best artist's life.
We believe your art business should be about you, your creativity and fulfillment.. no matter how unconventional. It's not too much to ask to make, market and sell your art your way. We're here to help you make your art business fulfilling on your terms.
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 low 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. All artists can find ways to benefit from membership in the Art Marketing Toolkit Project. It's as much about mutual support and camaraderie as it is about gaining valuable marketing tips. You get plenty of both with lots of encouragement to enjoy and improve your life as an artist.
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 without fees.
"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 at artists.life.
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.
