Whether you starting are a creative business or are in one currently it is a great thing when a fellow artist can lend a hand, show you the ropes, steer you in the right direction etc...
This past year I signed up to participate in Flying Lessons, an online course to help your creative business soar, with Kelly Rae Roberts. The course offered great guidance, gave you direction, offered an outline for creative paths and steps to take in order to help you nurture your business and grow.
Through this course I celebrated friendship and community with a group of creative women that continues to this day. I love how you are kept in creative conversations which are so important especially when you work alone most of the time making your art.
Happy Anniversary to The Fly Tribe!
To celebrate our Anniversary The Fly Tribe, a fantastic group of creative women raised money to offer Eight scholarships for this same course celebrating the art of giving and mentoring. What is even more exciting is that Kelly Rae is matching the amount raised so Sixteen scholarships will be made available!
This will be the last year this course will be offered so now is the time to jump in, or should I say take flight!. Click here for the Flying Lessons Give-Away Guidelines and Entry information.
What is obvious to me and what I have learned as an artist, it is important to give back, share knowledge and inspire.
Stop and visit some fantastic creative women who have shared what giving back means to them. Leave a comment.
