Registration for the 2016 class of the ArtBox Institute is now open. Discover how to grow and build your portfolio and brand, and get your work in front of more people. Open your art.
The ArtBox Institute is a business training and professional development program for creatives, arts administrators and artists of any medium, any age, at any stage of a career. The ArtBox Institute (ABI) is designed to provide tools and resources to navigate the business challenges of the contemporary marketplace. The curriculum is calibrated to provide a professional foundation built on acquiring practical skills for the marketplace, increasing confidence and actively participating in a community.
We talked with hundreds of artists. This is what we heard: How do I make a business plan? Do I really need one? What about a social media campaign: Would that help sell my art? I need ideas about creating events. I don’t want the money side to freak me out or slow me down. How do I get from here to there?
