WELCOME to Mind Your Art Business! Embrace Creatives, a professional business network connecting artists and buyers has partnered with Detroit Art & Business Institute to help brilliant artists, makers and designers increase their confidence, find business clarity and get on The A List.
What's The A List? It's a curated directory of professional, creative talent that buyers across the country are searching for.
Why do you want to get on The A List? Well, you want to sell your work and profit from your passion, right? You’ve GOT the talent and you understand the studio process but business part can be scary, confusing and frustrating. That's where the Mind Your Art Business Growth Course and programs come into play - to empower artists with easy-to-grasp education that speaks to our creative challenges, goals and mindset.
Getting on The A List shows commercial art buyers that you have what it takes to work professionally with them.
Talent Isn’t Enough. Commercial Art Buyers expect you to have market researched price points. Retail buyers and sales reps need organized artists who understand the ENTIRE sales process from introductions through reorders.
Curators and Interior designers don’t want to help you price your work, find insurance, or teach you how to promote yourself. Buyers are not your business coach. That’s not their job.
That’s my job. I’m Andrea Bogart, professional artist, curator, arts advocate and creative business guide.
The people you want to get your art in front of tell me over and over again that they expect MORE than stunning artwork and high craftsmanship.
"I look at aesthetics based on my own personal taste, and input from my staff, price point, quality, uniqueness compared to other products I carry.... stuff like that. It's difficult to tell what it will be like working with an artist or designer, and if they become high maintenance in any way, I dropped them." Kelly M. - MI Gallery Director
“Because of the challenges I faced for years when dealing with non-professional Artists, I now only work with Artists that understand business and how to form successful relationships.” Collin Miller, Co-Owner - The Artisan’s Bench, Brighton, MI
Commercial Art Buyers across the country are desperate to find Artists and Designers who invest in themselves and come fully prepared to be an amazing partner.
Those Artists get on The A List.
