Course 1 - Certificate in Starting your own Arts and Crafts Business Online Course

There are 12 units of study

Equipment and Studio

Have you ever wondered what kind of tools you would need to become an artist? Going into an art store can sometimes be overwhelming, so in our first lesson, we're going to take a look at the basic tools and supplies an artist needs for various projects. After you understand the tool set, you'll be prepared to confidently go to your local art store and start experimenting with supplies!

Basics of Drawing

With your art supplies in hand, it's time you get a firm understanding of drawing basics. Today, we're going to look at the importance of the silhouette and the outlining shape. When beginning to draw, it's so important that you understand the shapes you look at and how to put them onto paper. You'll also learn an amazingly fun one-eye drawing trick!

Drawing from Life and Photographs

In this lesson, we'll go over the two major components of drawing for the beginner. You'll find that the first challenge you're faced with is drawing from things you see. This is, after all, how we all learn to draw. You'll gain lots of great tips on how to draw what you see, how to set up scenes for photographs, and much more.

Lighting and Shading

Did you know that there are five forms of light? That's right! Today you'll learn how to illuminate the scene and change the mood all at once. We'll go over lighting and shading so you'll have all the knowledge a beginning artist needs when learning how to sketch (and more). Have you ever drawn a picture and realized that it looked quite flat? Well, that might be because you never added light to your images. So today we'll look at how to add light, and more importantly, shading!

Perspective: Unraveling the Mystery

Perspective has always been a necessity for anyone drawing pictures with depth. If you wanted to draw a set of buildings and have the viewer looking down the road, how would you do it? One, two, and even three-point perspective is how! In today's lesson, you'll learn how to find the horizon line, create depth in your page, and even find the vanishing points of your lines.

Rendering Techniques

It's time to make a spoon "feel" like a spoon and a rock "feel" like a rock. When you're drawing objects, it's important to create the sense of realism with line work. So in this lesson, we'll go over some important rendering techniques that will give you a jump start toward understanding gradation, line weight, and stylization. All of which will get you on the road to finding your own style and creative expression.

Layout and Design

It's all about telling your story! If you see a drawing of a big arrow pointing to the right, you'd probably look to the right, wouldn't you? In today's discussion on layout and design, we'll look at what it takes to persuade your audience to look at certain spots on your images at particular times without a big arrow. Sounds tough, doesn't it? Well, I'm going to show you some great methods and proven techniques for controlling everything you draw.

Landscape and City Rendering

It's time to put your skills to the test! In this lesson, we'll work up an entire scene with thumbnails then begin working on a first draft. Our discussion on creating landscapes will help you gain confidence in your skills that you've been working on up to this point. We'll also look at how to render your scenes with realistic lighting and shading while keeping the flow entertaining and informative.

Introduction to Color

Do pink and blue go together? Great question! What about the shadow color on an apple? What's the compliment to green? Creating images in color requires taking your artistic understanding to a whole new level. Today's lesson on color composition will be one of the most exciting and rewarding lessons in your art education!

Techno/Futuristic Drawing

In this lesson, I'm going to walk you through the future. That's right—we're going to look at and draw the techno future. You know those cool robots in movies and orbital vehicles flying around in space? Well, after you complete this lesson, you'll have a great understanding of how to create your very own future.

Introduction to Animals

Today's lesson is a great chance to get up close and personal with animals because it's packed full of measurements, proportions, and basic shapes for many of the animals around you. You'll be using a lot of what you've learned from the previous lessons in this course in order to bring your animal together. We'll also look at step-by-step techniques and sketches you can use to help draw monkeys and other crazy animals. It's time to stop monkeying around and start drawing!

Creating Things on Your Own

In our final lesson, we'll explore the human brain and how it functions to create art, memorizing and interpreting the world around you and keeping everything slightly straight in the process. Today, you're going to take those images and thoughts in your head and put them down on paper for everyone to see and enjoy!

Course 2 - Certificate in Starting your own Arts and Crafts Business Online Course

There are 12 units of study

Where to Start: Niches and Trends

We can't look into the future. Or can we? In this first lesson, you'll explore how to find your own niche within your chosen craft. Then you'll learn about resources for spotting future trends and making your business a success!

Establishing Your Business Identity

You've heard the expression "It's all in a name." But how do you determine which business name tells the public what you're all about? In this lesson, you'll get some foolproof guidelines for choosing the name that's right for your business. You'll also learn how to secure your name and design a logo your customers will remember you by.

Choosing the Right Location for You

Claiming your own work space is thrilling and scary at the same time. Today you'll explore your options, from the home studio to the retail space. Most important of all, you'll learn the secret to choosing the right one for you.

Designing Your Work Space and Buying in Bulk

In this lesson, you'll learn how to design your new work space for increased productivity and safety. We'll talk about setting up workstations, choosing work surfaces, lighting, organizing and storing craft supplies, and going green. Then you'll learn how to buy your supplies in bulk to maximize your profit.

Marketing in the Arts

What makes marketing in the arts and crafts business different from marketing in most other enterprises? You'll know the secret when you finish this lesson. You'll also know how to create a marketing strategy to get the word out about your new business. How will you put this plan into action? With tried-and-true marketing tools you'll learn here too!

Protecting Your Work

Figuring out how to price your work can feel like a mystery that might even stump Sherlock Holmes! If you aim too high, your products won't sell, and if you aim too low, you'll be out of business before you know it. Today you'll discover a formula for arriving at the best price while leaving yourself enough wiggle room to be flexible. You'll also learn how to protect your work through copyrights and through insuring your business against loss or damage.

But I Hate Sales!

Thinking of you-the-salesperson can sometimes make you-the-artist feel like you've been dropped into the Twilight Zone! But everyone has an inner salesperson. In this lesson, you'll find out how to see sales in a new light—one that meshes with your personality and creative integrity.

Wholesale, Consignment, and Galleries

How do you get your craft products into the marketplace? Today you'll explore how to get your crafts into retail stores at wholesale prices, place your products on consignment, and approach galleries and develop long-term relationships with them.

Online Selling, Craft Parties, and Your Own Retail Store

Retail is competitive, and you have to know your stuff to succeed. Whether it's the ins-and-outs of how to sell retail through craft parties, or some of the principles of setting up your own retail store, it's in this lesson! You'll also learn how and where to sell retail to a worldwide market on the Internet.

Craft Shows: Part 1

There are thousands of craft shows every year, so how can you find the best (most lucrative) craft shows to be in? In this lesson, you'll learn what the insiders know: how to find the best shows and what you'll need to get into them. You'll also see how to plan the details of travel and lodging and get an idea of what to bring along to ensure a smooth craft show experience.

Craft Shows: Part 2

Once you're in a craft show, you'll need to pull those craft lovers out of the aisles and into your booth! Today you'll discover how to design booths and displays that draw people in, and you'll learn how to keep them there with compelling demonstrations, solid craft fair sales, and smart marketing techniques.

Teaching Your Craft

Teaching can be fulfilling both financially and emotionally, and it can also be a great marketing tool for the rest of your business! Today you'll learn how to find teaching opportunities, design your curriculum, and price and promote your class. By the end of this lesson, our final one, you'll have everything you need to approach your local craft supply store, art school, or continuing education department with a professional proposal for your class.
