EDUCATION

Leverage Your Art

As 2020 kicked off, I was deep into my creative zone, busy crafting art and curating a portfolio focused solely on licensing for my business. I had quit out of my 20+ year IT career the previous year and was excited for the career change I had taken and starting my own business. It was during a revisit of Bonnie Christine's Immersion course that I stumbled upon a bonus session led by Stacie Bloomfield. She delved into the concept of multiple income streams and the art of leveraging your creative work, and my mind was blown wide open. The pièce de résistance was the tease of Stacie's upcoming course, Leverage Your Art, set to launch in a couple of months. The countdown felt eternal, and my anticipation couldn't have been more intense.

Stacie is currently offering a free mini course The Artist's Side Hustle, where she teaches you how you can run an art business with just 5 hours per week. You still have time to sign up and dive into her lessons – they'll be accessible until August 29th plus it's a great opportunity if you're curious about her teaching style. 

With the arrival of Leverage Your Art, everything clicked. This was my path forward, my golden ticket to transforming my business. The spark ignited by that bonus lesson fuelled me throughout the entire course. Even in the midst of a pandemic, the synchrony of extra time at home couldn't have been more serendipitous.

As I soaked in the course lessons, I wasted no time putting the knowledge into action. From revamping my branding and boosting my online presence to handcrafting my first line of products (funky tea towels stitched with my designs), launching my e-commerce store, and hustling with pitches to small businesses, my journey surged forward. Licensing deals started happening, and my designs even scored a feature in the Pattern Pulse book. But it didn't stop there. I hosted my inaugural in-person workshop, expanded my product range, and ventured into the realm of wholesale.

What a ride it has been – all thanks to the insights gained from that enlightening bonus lesson and the entire Leverage Your Art journey. It's like the universe conspired with my newfound skills to propel my business amidst the pandemic's uncertainty. 

Leverage Your Art is geared to artists ready to turn their creativity into a thriving business. It's a comprehensive journey that covers art licensing, pitching your work, and creating your own line of products, all while gaining insights into the essential business dimensions. You'll learn to transform your passion into profit, while mastering the art of managing your creative enterprise. This course paves the way to a sustainable and successful artistic career, whether you're just dipping your toes in or a seasoned pro.
