What is the smARTist Store?
This smARTist Store has 74 art-career presentations (in 45-60 min. audio MP3, and PDF) from 49 art-career authorities and successful artists on…
How did it start?
Back in the Dark Ages of 2007, I saw a word that was brand new to the quick-lightening world of the Internet: telesummit.
Instantly, I saw how visual fine artists, who needed access to critical art career resources, and art career authorities, who needed better ways to reach artists, could connect: the smARTist Telesummit!
Up to then, teleseminars ruled. Hundreds of people attended a seminar taught by one expert, via a single phone number. No packing, airports, bad airline food, long delays… All you did was, dial, listen and learn. Cool.
Then someone expanded the teleseminar from one-person-teaching-at-a-time to a summit, or conference, with multiple speakers or teachers. Again with a single telephone number – thus telesummit.
Of course, I had no idea what the heck I was doing. I just thought it a fabulous idea to get artists the information that could help their careers.
Where does the smARTist Store get its training materials?
After 6 annual, smARTist Telesummits, attended by thousands of happy artists, your feedback convinced us to break up the full package of conference materials (each year we featured a dozen or more art career authorities and successful artists as keynote speakers).
Here in the store, you can access individual presentations on any art career area of your choice. It’s a virtual, art career resource library for visual fine artists at any point in their careers: emerging, mid-career, and established!
What are you buying?
Each smARTist Telesummit Keynote Speaker prepared a 45–60 min presentation on their area of expertise (which was recorded, live, during the conference), plus a juicy, companion handout (PDF) specially prepared for the telesummit participants by each speaker.
With each purchase, you get the full audio MP3 and Companion Speaker Handout (PDF). Plus, you get the benefit of the live questions asked by participating artists when a speaker opened up the phone lines to answer their questions.
What’s our guarantee?
I stand behind these presentations 100%. If for any reason you are unhappy, just let us know within 30 days of purchase and we’ll cheerfully refund every penny.

I’ve Forgotten How Many Years
I’ve Been Taking This Program
“I’ve been doing it so long that I’ve forgotten how many years I’ve been taking this telesummit program, but I can tell you that each time, so much new information is covered that I never feel I’ve had enough.
The year you gave us Social Media information, I couldn’t imagine how it could be helpful. Now I’m up and running with two Facebook fan pages, and was even given a write-up in my local paper because I had so many followers on Twitter.
Because of past smARTist discussions—about giving artwork search engine friendly titles, I’ve received two commissions.
So once again, I thank you for setting up this great telesummit each year. It’s both a reinforcement and a growth tool for me.”
