"Your program is the most on point marketing program I have seen for artists. 

You communicate in their vocabulary, you have credibility from your personal experience, and you are not afraid to challenge assumptions. 

Attendees better understand that art as a business is feasible."

Ann Rea is an Artist and Mentor to a growing global community of artists and the creator of The MAKING Art Making MONEY Semester, a live and interactive community and online business and marketing program for independent artists, including live online Saturday classes. 

Saturday classes are open (for free) to any artist who wants to learn about how to sell their art without feeling like a sell-out. 

As long as guest students are open to contributing to the conversation, they are welcome to join us. 

Guest students will be invited to apply to enroll in the program at the end of each class, but there is no obligation or forced commitment. 

The MAKING Art Making MONEY Semester Partnership Program includes a growing list of US Small Business Development Centers, US county arts councils, and non-profit artists organizations who are helping to bring more awareness to the tools and concepts that are critical in helping artists not just create, but also flourish financially and claim control over their futures. 

Apply now and join us. 

PS Students of The MAKING Art Making MONEY Semester Program must earn back their tuition investment, at a minimum, through the sale of their art during their final Prototype Project.
