VIDEO #1“The Art of Business and the Business of Art”

“The Art of Business and the Business of Art” is a step-by-step, month-by month workshop series consisting of short videos and expanded workbooks.  Sometimes when you are embarking on new adventures it helps to have someone to guide you and hold your hand.  That is how these workshops are designed. 

They are created by sculptor, writer, speaker and entrepreneur Bridgette Mongeon, and are compiled from her many workshops on business and creativity. It was her desire to make her workshops easily accessible and doable.

The series is presented as a month to month workshop. To participate begin with video one and proceed with the steps. The artist sets out a step-by-step, month-to-month procedure for success.

* Individuals wanting to start a business
* Individuals working in the arts that want to make a living with their art
* Individuals who are in businesses, but need to stretch their “creative muscle”
* Individuals working in a Christian business or ministry

Here is what others have said about Ms. Mongeon's face to face workshop. Feel free to share your thoughts about the online workshop on the interactive forum.

"This workshop is a necessity for every practicing artist and student.
I commend Ms. Mongeon on the development of such a resource. "

Professor David Hickman University of Houston
Former President-Houston Society of Illustrators

"I left the room with the certainty that if fame and fortune were going to
be mine, it would only occur if I took the bull by the horns, and you
showed me not only where the bull was but how to get the horns, as well.
Besides your ebullient enthusiasm, which is highly contagious,
you also shared with us lucky attendees really practical steps to
getting where we want to go. I left the lecture with a suitcase of ideas."
