These workshops are presented by The Arts Business Institute, a 16-year old nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting artists and providing practical business education for creative entrepreneurs. At ABI, we’ve worked with thousands of artists over the years, many of whom are making a living doing what they love – making and selling their work.

ABI also supports artists through mentoring, online learning and even an “Access to Market” program that assists guilds, art organizations and artists in entering the marketplace.
