 The Business of Art™ -  Entrepreneurial Training for Artists

Artists and creative entrepreneurs who take CCI's signature 8-week program, Business of Art™, learn key business skills that provide them with the knowledge and resources to help advance their art, develop their ideas, and increase their financial independence. Business of Art™ classes are taught by a variety of business leaders with experience in both corporate and nonprofit entities. Students learn key concepts involved in goal-setting, strategic planning, marketing and self-promotion, money management, legal issues, and project financing. In addition to classroom training, all Business of Art™ students participate in cluster counseling sessions with leading arts and business professionals.

What former attendees are saying:

"Like many creative artists, I had always been timid about taking charge of my own promotion, and Business of Art gave me a very practical path to do just that."

"My art career has blossomed through continued networking and resources learned in the classes. I would highly recommend Business of Art to artists looking for the next step."
