Artwork Guides & Resources

At Art Force Academy, we’ve collated useful artwork guides to help both artists and end-users know what’s new and fresh on the market. The artwork guides below were released under the Art Enthusiast track throughout the first half of 2016 and include information on art for healthcare facilities, custom visual solutions and comprehensive art management.

Artwork Service Industry Case Studies

We’re steadily building up a library from work we’ve done with over 150 client partners across healthcare, corporations, education, financial services, legal, hospitality and more. We see these as valuable to both artist entrepreneurs and art enthusiasts as they give you a glimpse into the  artwork services industry and what clients have appreciated in the past.

Just for Fun

Art inspires, but it can also be a lot of fun. We like to explore things like color psychology, map out our local art scene, and offer information and studies as much as possible for our readers. Please enjoy just a few of our fun projects through time at Art Force Academy.
