Artist INC Express helps artists, of any discipline, develop the building blocks for a thriving and enduring arts practice.

Led by a team of experienced, working artists, this hands-on workshop helps artists like you address specific needs and challenges that you’ll face throughout your career. Through discussions, activities, and hands-on exercises, your artist-facilitators, and your new network of peer artists, will help you set goals for your practice, write about your work, and build a personal brand. 

Artist INC Express is a slimmed down, yet still highly active, version of the popular eight-week Artist INC Live program , which has been completed by more than 2,000 artists since 2009. Artist INC Express explores those same core concepts of how to build a lasting arts practice in a shorter, more flexible format, to help reach a broader audience of artists.  

If you sign on for Artist INC Express, you are asked to commit to the entire workshop, as exercises build on one another and participants develop deep relationships with their fellow artists over the two sessions. Be ready to participate throughout in group discussions, hands-on exercises, and small group work. 

And just know, it’s not over when it’s over. Right away, Artist INC Express activates a network of artists in your community, leading to more peer-to-peer resource sharing, collaborations, and support long after the workshop concludes.



Artist INC Express workshops are divided into two 5-hour sessions.

Session 1 Saturday, May 18, 2024, 11:00am-4:00pm MST

What Works, Success Inventory, Eulogy, ADEP Analysis, SMART Goal Setting, and Funding a Practice
