LET'S DO A LIL (PROBLEMATIC) ART SCHOOL vs. REAL LIFE COMPARISON, shall we?

What we SHOULD have learned

  • how to sell

  • how to negotiate 

  • how to price work strategically

  • how to move past imposter syndrome when its little head pokes through

  • how to show

  • how to properly access jobs, grants, residencies

  • how to write press kits

  • how to network

  • how to present professionally

  • how to pitch yourself 

  • how to leverage the online world

  • REAL WORLD SKILLS

What we ACTUALLY  did 

  • learn color theory & color mixing

  • explored various art classes & media

  • took some LONG ASS art history classes that forced us to memorize dates, time periods, artists, and facts ALL IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER on index cards

  • took 2 mandatory classes that EVERYONE skipped like chemistry in art as a science & history of jazz 

  • worked mainly on mastering traditional art & design skills 

  • lots of art critiques (that I miss :( 

HARD KNOCK FACTS

  • Top 25 most expensive colleges are art schools

  • Avg. BFA goes for $45K/year

  • Avg. MFA goes for $50K/year

  • Visual artists in the lowest 10% earn less than $20,070, while those in the top 10% earn upwards of $112,970

  • Recent college graduate with a BFA who is working for minimum wage in an art supplies store and freelancing is going to be on the lower end of the wage continuum

 BUT What if…
We could solve this issue in 90 days with a seasoned expert who would customize your experience towards becoming the artist in business you WANT to be...what if?

That's what they said...

"I had these tiny 4 in x 4 in canvases and I vowed to fill them, to keep going, to explore and see what would burst out and in what medium. I actually finished it and will have it on display and for sale next month in an actual gallery, a milestone that I wouldn't have achieved without the confidence to probe and play during The Creative Process."
“Showing up means you know wtf is up!” is just one of my fav gems from Terri. She is always dropping gems! I’m appreciative and grateful to have been a part of this community as it has really changed my CEO mindset. As a result, I have been holding myself more accountable and showing TF up for my business! As an artist, business owner and teacher herself, Terri is understanding of our busy lifestyles but blunt in telling us when we’re slacking. Settling is not an option and Terri is always there to help us refocus, offer up encouragement and make us laugh in the mix.
 
Thank you Terri, love ya art mom!
"This course has given me creative as well as business incentives as I explore and define my brand, to discover my artistic identity and commit to it. I joined this program to get serious about my career as an artist. I wanted to graduate from making my word art a hobby to a focused practice, to level up, as Terri would say.
 
But first I had to combat some imposer syndrome, limiting beliefs, and the constant feeling of just not being able to hack it. But, I wanted to learn, and when I really thought about it, I had goals. I did not want to flail in the whirlpool of social media when I had something real to share, that I was proud of, and wanted to create a business from it. But didn't know where to start."

"Today I am less afraid of stepping into my CEO self, knowing what I am worth, and where my strengths lie. I want to show more of my process, the experimentation, instead of the illusion of perfection I was striving for. As result I have fined tuned my creative habits and am willing to take risks in showing how I work, and more of my authentic self out there is Media Land.

 

The best part was being in the Zoom room with 7 other individuals who inspire me as we've been navigating our different stages and talents together. And there is so much more I want to achieve.

When does it start?


Mid June-August




I'm super scared to invest in myself...wtf do I do?


Well, you should be. If you weren;t scared of something new or challenging yourself in ways you have yet to do so then I would say that's odd. Often times being "scared" is actually a sign of excitement, anxiety is a sign of worry...so what IF you actually took the plunge and invested in yourself and made your $$$ BACK and then some? That's what happened to me...I invested scared shitless and then made my $$$ back + doubled right after my program. SO WHAT IF IT WORKS, not what if it doesnt.




Do you have a payment plan?


Yep, 6 months




How much access do I get to you personally?


You get coached during every single call & get to see me coach every other student. ALSO, you get daily access through our group channel to ask me anything Monday-Friday, I check the channel at least twice a day.
