Ignite the Arts - Scholarship fund for artist training

Ignite the Arts covers the cost of C4 Atlanta’s Ignite tuition to 60 artists in Atlanta. Classes include:
  • Ignite - An eight-week entrepreneurship seminar for artists. Ignite helps artists build a strategic business plan. 
  • Artists In the Marketing Place (AIM Atlanta) - A three-week marketing course designed for small arts businesses. 
  • SITE - A Three-week class that helps artists build a website and bring work online to promote, display or sell. 
$10,000 = 60 full scholarships in 2014. That’s 60 artists, with 60 ideas for creative businesses in our community. 

Why does an artist need business training?

C4 Atlanta believes that artists are some of the smartest & coolest people in the world, but traditional art training programs do not equip artists with the essential skills to promote their art, understand market trends, or manage a complex business budget. Many artists are entrepreneurial in spirit. C4 Atlanta provides the framework for artists to take their creative ideas and implement them. 

There are many programs that help people seek jobs, learn business skills, or start a new venture. But C4 Atlanta exists specifically for the artist-entrepreneur. Teaching artists how to blend their creative expertise with sound business principles is all we do, all year long. We are that passionate about our mission!

All $10,000 will go to a scholarship fund to be used by June 30, 2014. 

Give today to support local Artists!
