Everything you need to know to develop and thrive as an creative.

“The shit they don’t teach you in Art School”

For nearly three decades I’ve been a leading figure in creative industries, as the founder and CEO of a number of organisations I’ve employed many, including photographers, artists, writers, film makers and designers, bringing in millions of dollars and reaching a global audience of millions.

The creative industry is huge, in 2018 it grossed over $400 Billion in the US alone. It doesn’t matter if you are an artist, photographer, designer, musician or writer there are essential elements to the business that you need to understand in order to be successful. You can spend many years learning through trial and error, making mistakes (sometimes expensive) or you can learn from an insider.

Designed for creatives who are either already forging their way in the industry or those who are planing to make the leap, this intensive one day professional development workshop will be transformational to you and your business. Whether you’re a photographer, artist, designer, writer, film maker or musician this unique event is for you!

The Business of Art

This class teaches you about how you can fit in the art world. Yeah, there are many courses out there that you can take, but this all day class by Plastic Jesus is more tailored and more personal which teaches you about "your" development/growth, creative branding, market strategy, and your artwork in the market place. These are the subjects that Plastic Jesus can teach through his experiences as an artist. I highly recommend taking The Business of Art Class, It really gave me a stepping stone to begin my journey as a beginning artist. "Thank you, Plastic Jesus!"
