IAPRO 2100 Micro Business for Artists & Designers

During this course, students will go through the steps of creating a for-profit business that ideally, is an extension of their personal art. Students must choose a commercially viable product or service to bring to the marketplace, i.e. custom illustrated snowboards, web site designs, or professional photography services. Through this process you will gain knowledge in several key business areas including management (self, time, product), marketing, and finance. The skills learned are easily transferable to any enterprise regardless of whether you ultimately work for yourself, or within an organization.
