The Astute Artist has been expressly designed to assist artists with functioning more professionally. Working at your own pace, you will learn how to transform your art practice into a viable small business.

As well as the basics, such as identifying the right industry pathway and your key strengths, we guide you through setting up your art business efficiently, writing quality content and ensuring you are ready for any gallery or media opportunities that arise.

Provided in an order that flows from one crucial step to the next, each module will take around an hour to read through, with homework and your own research adding extra time. We ask questions, provide tasks, encourage you to form positive habits and invite you to dig deep into the heart of your art practice in order to propel your career forward.

Whether you are looking to run a successful side hustle or ultimately want to become a full-time artist, this course is for you.


Each module is self-paced and we offer three course options – the full six-module course, the first three modules or the last three modules.

Option #1

All 6 modules

Option #2

Modules 1-3

Option #3

Modules 4-6


We acknowledge the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation, in Australia, where this course was developed and created. We pay our respects to their elders, past, present and emerging. We also pay our respects to the original Indigenous artists of this land, who created art as far back as 30,000 years ago and initiated a legacy that continues to inspire the global art community.
