Are you feeling overwhelmed trying to build a business around your art?
Working as an artist is stressful enough without having to muddle through websites, sales channels and payment gateways, email marketing and social media - all the things yourself!
It’s so easy to waste hours sifting through the internet trying to find the information you want, plus awkward stages when you’re not quite sure if you’ve set something up right, and I’m guessing that’s not how you imagined spending your time as an artist…
What if you could get all the info you need, all in one place?
Well, you can.

"Create Membership Academy covers everything you need to build momentum as an artist or refresh a business that already exists. I have worked as an artist for many years but felt overwhelmed by new technology and trying to keep up with social media. This membership provided a clear path for me to follow and I feel more relaxed and creative as a result."

It's completely up to you. I recommend spending at least an hour a week to begin with. You can spend more time if you want, but this is the minimum to get you thinking consistently and creatively about your business. At first, you may want to spend extra time putting what you have learnt into action.
The membership costs $47 AUD per month. You manage your own subscription, there are no contracts, and you can cancel at anytime. Plus, we have a 30-day 100% money back guarantee, so there is no risk.
I want you to feel you are getting amazing value from your membership. However, if you have completed your first month, and don't feel it is right for you, then feel free to cancel your subscription. No questions asked, and we wish you all the best.
Ideally, yes, however you may have another job and be doing this part-time with the goal of turning your passion into a full-time business one day. Now's the time to learn these skills! A passion for your art and a willingness to learn is all you need to benefit from Create.
I have a degree in Fine Art and have been working as a full-time artist for six years. I exhibit several times a year and sell my paintings regularly. I am also studying business and creating resources made especially for artists. I am passionate about helping artists succeed, and sharing my own experiences of working as an artist.
If you are an emerging artist just starting out, or an established artist needing help organising their business, then we can help. Each lesson has a variety of text, workbooks, short videos, checklists and guides to cover different learning preferences. We cover everything from starting up to sales, marketing to social media, mindset, productivity and so much more. Create Membership Academy gives you the tools to build a sustainable art business and support yourself as an artist.
You work at your own pace, however we encourage you to engage and share your questions and wins with other members in the Facebook group. You can also ask questions in the comments section under each lesson. We are here for you if you would like some feedback or need extra help.
This membership will support you as an artist, and show you how to build a business around your art. Gain clarity around your vision as an artist, what you want to achieve, and learn how to market your business successfully. Once the business side is organised, you will have more time to do what you do best - CREATE.
