NYC, we're coming for you.



Owning a creative business is hands down one of the hardest things I have ever done, and frankly, will ever do. But it's within this same breath that I acknowledge that all of this hard work fulfills an emotional need within me that no other experience has ever come close to touching. Such is the plight of an artist, a feeling that so many of you know all too well. But all is not lost -- there's hope for people like us. And this creative intensive is where I've taken all that hope, bottled it up, and put it into a pretty package for you, for us, as a way for all of us to learn from one another and take this twisted artistic plot that we find ourselves in and push it to heights we never thought possible.

Still on the fence as to whether or not this intensive workshop is everything you've been searching for for your creative endeavor? Well, take a look at the curriculum below and then ask yourself, "how have I gone this long without it?" We're so excited to already have so many brilliantly talented people grab their seat... Join us, won't you?
