Inside Fine & Cultural Arts and Studio Art

Studio art, also called fine & Cultural Arts, is traditionally defined as art that is enjoyed visually, such as photographs, paintings, prints, drawings, sculptures, decoative arts, natural arts, carving, sewing, beading or footwear. Learning how to market the art hones your communication skills and allows you to create artwork with the goal of selling it to galleries, museums or individuals. You can also use these skills to teach art or work in an educational format to many different types of organizations. 

Whether you want to create works of art to sell in a gallery, tradeshow, teach art or work in your own business Native Studio Art guides you through a process of private mentorship and coaching to successful entrepreneurship. If you're interested in turning artistic ability into a career, keep reading to explore our coaching options below.
