Art Force Academy

Artist Entrepreneurs, Welcome!

The Artist Entrepreneur Program at Art Force Academy is a place for established artists or artists who are just getting started to hone their business acumen and planning skills. You know art, and we know business. The idea is to get together and create a community designed around knowledge sharing and creating lasting relationships that open doors for new opportunities. For more information on the Artist Entrepreneur Program, please read the Artist Entrepreneur Program Syllabus.

As part of our beta program, artists may enroll at no cost.

By combining art and charity, Art Force has made a resolution to work toward uplifting the Twin Cities in a memorable way. To kick off the Community Fund, $1 will be contributed for every piece of artwork placed throughout the year. Stay tuned for community fund updates in 2016 and please read below for Community Fund highlights from past years.

Artists with backgrounds in paint, sculpture, ceramics, glass, metal, mixed-media, mural art, abstract art, modern art, contemporary art, and many other art forms not listed here are common for our community. Even if your art form is not listed here, we would love for you to join our community and help broaden our offerings.

I'm a well-established artist. Why should I join Art Force Academy?

If you are a well-established artist, Art Force Academy can add exposure to your work and potentially, help you get your artwork placed in one of our hundreds of high-profile project locations.

Depending on your experience level, we might even be interested in bringing your work into the curriculum to help other artists learn from your success. If you are interested in being involved in the program at an instructor level, that is also something we are happy to discuss.

I'm an amateur artist. Is Art Force Academy right for me?

No matter your skill level, Art Force will work with you to assess your full potential in the world of artwork services. Throughout your time at Art Force Academy, we will work with artists of all skill levels and depths of experience to uncover hidden potential.

While we cannot guarantee your artwork will sell or be added to our artwork database, we are happy to help guide and connect aspiring artists with the resources they need to bring their skills to the next level.

Will Art Force Academy help me sell my artwork?

As a learning community, Art Force Academy is not designed as a sales platform. It will help us start a conversation about considering your artwork for inclusion in our database.

Can artists also become art consultants?

Of course! As we mentioned on the Art Consultant FAQs, people like Steve Brumbaugh work as artists and art consultants. The two disciplines serve to compliment each other!
