Serving The Visual Artist
Professionals With the Will to Thrive
"I want to build a sustainable business in art, and I'm learning a lot to give structure to the way I think about that."
"The content was so rich. There is so much to tap into. I feel overwhelmed in a good way."
"I'm at this forum because I'm an emerging artist. I have the products but I don't know what to do with the products..."
"This feels like I found my tribe. These folks are speaking my language. This is what I want to know about."
CHF's Digital Learning Portal equips working artists with a community of peers and industry leaders, continually added art-business courses and educational media, and access to instructors through virtual office hours.
The Art-Business Accelerator offers a limited number of working artists with demonstrated viability and interest an interactive business-education resulting in accelerated careers and advanced entrepreneurial skills.

"CHF has given me more confidence as an artist, and my sales have increased dramatically this quarter."
Gregg paints trains and cars with historic significance. It's not just a love for things that move; Gregg sees the incredible draw of these subjects as entry points for collectors who might otherwise be alienated by the tiles and splatters of post-modern aesthetics.

"My sales have significantly improved because of all of the work I have done with CHF."
Nadia uses what's in front of her and teaches others to do the same. Her work is aimed at hospitality and commercial spaces that are interested in local themes (what's in front of you) and art that utilizes locally sourced materials. This is part of Nadia's theorum that the world's success depends on working together and that depends on working first with who and what you see. [profile]
"I had more sales in the past two months than in all of last year. I am so grateful to be part of this."
Kristin uses the detailed research methods of a molecular biologist to produce wood and metal sculptures that are vastly detailed but elegantly simple, and which connect us to the extraordinary, strange beauty of the natural world. [profile]
