This course is to equip artists, specifically those who are striving to be part or full-time professional artists, with the knowledge and connections to build and maintain a career within the arts and culture industry in Canada. Each week we will discuss important topics followed by engaging activities we work on independently and as a group. This allows you to review and apply what you are learning while it is fresh in your mind.

We will be learning and discussing core topics such as:

  • Entrepreneurship and the journey to becoming a professional artist on a national scale
  • Building a business plan. Week by week, you will fit everything you learn together near the end to build your business plan. This will guide you towards completing the goals you set for yourself during this course.
  • What a studio practice looks like and how it functions; from inventory to planning, you work and plan through the high and low seasons.
  • When it is important to consider legal service and consider ways to protect your work.
  • Building a networking frame and relationships between buyers, customers, retailers, gallery owners, curators etc.
  • Developing your online presence and making yourself and your art known on a larger scale.
  • Where to start with finances and how to manage them.
