Through their flexible, practical, and real-world approach to creative practice, commercialisation, art licensing, and entrepreneurial education, ArtSHINE supports and empowers Creatives to build sustainable enterprises and generate viable incomes.
To further help commercially minded Creatives in taking their Art & Design practices to the next level, ArtSHINE draws on the knowledge of experienced industry professionals for its specialist launch pad and accelerator coaching programs. In these programs, ArtSHINE delivers coaching, training, and ongoing support, applies ‘action learning’ principles, and provides business templates, tools, and resources, along with their OPIC™ action planning system designed to help Creatives commercialise their work.
ArtSHINE’s coaching programs are generally twelve months in duration, with successful graduates being represented at an international trade show exhibition in Asia, Europe, or North America as part of the program’s culmination.
Despite the world moving faster and the increasing competition among Creatives, there has never been a time of greater opportunity than today. And this is evident in the successes of ArtSHINE’s participants.
“ArtSHINE has helped me through each stage of my business plan and creating systems for my business. I have gone from knowing nothing about the retail and wholesale gift-ware industry to having a stand at Life Instyle and gaining 30 new stockists.” says Sophie Cooper, founder of Scoops Design.
“Working with ArtSHINE has developed and grown my art and licensing practice in ways I could not have imagined,” adds Gabby Malpas, who is a licensing artist.
