Create Your Own Art Business

Alejandro and Shelby have created a curriculum for creating an art business called "The 3 Phases." Each of these phases holds the milestones each artist or artisan needs to achieve in order to grow their business. This curriculum is designed to take the mystery out of becoming a professional artist and gives you a step-by-step action guide so you know exactly what your next goal should be.  

How to Use this Website

This website is full of resources for minds of all kinds. Each phase is broken down into action steps and each action step has its own podcast, video, and blog to accommodate how you learn best. Of course, if you still have questions, feel free to reach out and contact us. 

The 3 Phases

The key to building a successful art career is often just as elusive to the master artist as it is to the novice. However, combining experience in education, business, and real-world art experience, Alejandro and Shelby have broken this intangible topic into digestible pieces. 

Reach Out and Join the Community

Here you will find a multitude of resources to build your art career, but beyond there is a community to artists in every phase looking to get and give advice to fellow artists. Join a powerful community to find the answers you're looking for.
