If you are an artist or creative but have never really been involved in an arts community you’ll receive an invitation to join a once a month (1 1/2hrs) creative mastermind group. You will benefit from meeting and forming relationships with other artists, learn from their experiences and be able to share what you are working on, ask for help and increase your skills.
All artists will have the opportunity to form relationships with other artists through the meetings; you will find spaces to share the projects you are working on, get ideas for setting up your own creative space, receive exclusive discounts from vetted partners for things like art & creative supplies, workshops, and retreats. You can participate in both virtual and in person events that we will be scheduling and organizing such as trips to movies, galleries, concerts and more. All artists will have the opportunity to participate in juried online art and/or maker exhibitions with the majority of all sales going directly to the artist themselves.
Most importantly, we provide trusted, vetted and approved resources to help you on your journey. One of the passions of our founder, Susan L. Greig, is providing resources that can be trusted. Much of this is borne from hearing stories of how artists in the community were taken advantage of in the past – more than ever there is a proliferation of art shows, online classes and websites that promise to help you sell your art, be discovered or gain followers on social media, help you with creative block. How do you know who to trust? A secondary important focus of Braid St Studios is to introduce you to peers and a supportive community and we ONLY provide vetted resources that we have worked with personally and who have proven results with multiple artists within the community.
If you have been a practicing artist for some time then we would suggest our second level wherein you will be invited to attend two meetings a month (3hrs per month) with your creative mastermind group. This is a great group to get your feet wet in if you want to explore the idea of significantly improving your skills through our career trajectory interviews, selling your art or hiring out, working in collaboration with other artists in the community on joint projects and creating your art more consistently and regularly.
At the third level of participation you will be invited to participate in three (4 1/2hrs per month) creative mastermind meetings per month.
Focus is much more for professional artists and creatives who may be making some or all of their living from their creations, who teach and/or are wanting to develop classes and courses (you may beta test them within the Braid St community); there are opportunities within the community to be interviewed for our Career Trajectory Interviews and/or teach workshops; you will benefit from the experience of industry professionals and other experienced artists and to leverage the power of this amazing network of creative entrepreneurs.
