Want to earn a living as an artist or craftmaker?
The North Coast Small Business Development Center is offering a special program for artists on the North Coast to enhance their business skills. This "Art as a Business" cohort learning program will run for three months in 2019. We have done this program several times and response has always been very positive.
Is This for Me?
Do you wish you could earn a living or increase your income from your tangible artwork or craftwork products? Does your household live with a low-to-moderate income? If you answer yes to both of these, then you may be eligible.

Step (3) WE CONFIRM YOUR FLIGHT ELIGIBILITY You will get a phone call and an email after your application has been reviewed letting you know whether it's time to set up your intake interview with a business advisor. That conversation will allow us to figure out whether this Art as a Business flight is the right program for your needs, or if our other services will suit you better. If you are a fit for this cohort, we will assign you your own business coach who will talk in depth with you about your hopes, needs, and goals. If you are a fit for the cohort but you don't qualify for the full scholarship you can decide then if you want to pay out of pocket, or you can choose to have business advising only, which is always no-cost.
