Artist as Entrepreneur Series - Session 1: Art Business Mindset (Virtual)

Makiko Harris, Artist and Small Business Owner
1 class meeting / Wednesday, March 3
6:30 PM to 8:00 PM

As artists, thinking about your practice as a business can be uncomfortable or even scary. Maybe you’re not sure what you want the business to be like or how to go about it, are afraid of what other people will think of your business, or not sure if you want it to be a business at all!

You’re not alone - so let’s unpack this together! In this 2-hour virtual session, we will discuss how to:

- Set intentions for your business that are in alignment with YOU
- Create a growth mindset
- Set clear and actionable goals

Let’s demystify and get clear on what you want for your art business, and help build confidence that you can and will make it happen!


About the Artist as Entrepreneur Course Series: Being an artist is sometimes so much more than making artwork. If you want to have a sustainable creative life, it can basically mean becoming a self-employed entrepreneur. In this course series, we’ll cover the Mindset, Systems, Operations, and more of running an art business. Take them as a series or pick any course individually!
