BOFA2-cover-lo-res-wborder.jpg

CCI’s signature program, the Business of Art, is designed to enhance the business skills of artists and creative entrepreneurs.

As a Business of Art student, you will learn key skills that will provide you with the knowledge and resources to help advance your art career, develop your ideas, and increase your financial independence. Business of Art workshop sessions are taught by arts and business leaders with both commercial and nonprofit experience. Over eight workshops, you will learn key concepts involved in goal-setting, marketing and self-promotion, money management, legal issues, strategic planning and project financing. In the final session, all students will have the opportunity to receive feedback and insights in small group Cluster Counseling sessions with leading arts and business professionals. To supplement the program, you will also receive a copy of The Business of Art: An Artist’s Guide to Profitable Self-Employment, a CCI publication now in its second edition.
