An Artist Community

Your online home for networking, support, and sharing ideas.

Created for artists like you who want stay productive and focused on their goals.

Monthly and Annual Memberships Available

Joining your group is one of the best things I've done in a long time. Being in contact with people who care about their artwork and art itself has made a big difference in my outlook and my thought process. It was my good fortune to become a member during a pandemic.—Pamela Atkinson

I don't need to tell you that artists are facing a challenging landscape.

Nobody knows what the future options will look like for exhibiting and selling art, though, when we bring our collective knowledge together, we can make educated predictions.

We have to take charge. We must control what we can, and we need a community of like-minded, dedicated artists to help navigate these unknowns.

Join us!

Trying to figure everything out on your own and not getting the results you want.

Being around only people who don't understand the specific challenges that artists face.

Stopping and restarting. And restarting. And restarting. And ... And ... And ...


Stay connected with artists with experiences that you can learn from and coaches who can help you strategize.

Be in a community of advancing artists who get you.

Maintain momentum for your art and business—knowing that you have massive support should you ever stray far from your goals.

The Art Biz Connection community is for ambitious visual artists who want to sharpen their business and marketing skills while maintaining a healthy studio practice, discover the latest trends and predictions in the art world, and share struggles and joys with like-minded artists.

Inside of the community, our monthly themes are selected to keep you focused on your business, with lively discussions evolving around those themes. Our themes have included making videos, improving your relationship with money, collaborating, auditing your online presence, nurturing relationships, cleaning out, and focusing on productivity.

In The Art Biz Connection ...

Have live conversations with other members in our monthly Community Connections and Studio Talks.

Participants are divided into small Zoom groups to get to know one another and share ideas and experiences about the directed topic.

Get stuff done during Get It Done Days.

These are a member favorite and exactly what they sound like—a day set aside to work on, with our group energy behind you, a particular task or project that you've been procrastinating. Mostly monthly.

Take bold steps with our support.

Every now and then, I throw down a community challenge designed to encourage you to take a step in a direction that might be uncomfortable, but that is necessary for professional growth. It's a fun way to get some accountability.

Stay informed.

You'll receive an email every Monday to get you focused and engaged with the activity inside of the community. It isn't sent because you need more email. Lawd knows! It's to remind you that a new work week is beginning and we are here to support you. It's to keep you connected to your art business.

Stay connected, seek answers, and share resources

Be part of our members-only forum, where my team and I are very active. In the forum, I post weekly questions and polls, resources, updates, and check-ins. We also spotlight one of our members each week so you can get to know one another. We'd love to spotlight you!

We use Mighty Networks (not Facebook!) for our community. I think you'll love it as much as we do.

I'm forever grateful for what I've learned from Alyson and from the members of our Art Biz Success community. Right after the pandemic hit, I switched my website platform because I thought it was finally time to jump into the print market. It’s proven a fantastic leap for me. I’ve enjoyed extremely good sales in 2020, in no small part because Art Biz Success prepared me for the constant wooing of contacts and collectors and the storytelling about my art that the new site demands. Alyson also admonishes us to maintain a healthy studio practice, so I was able to balance the new platform’s pressure of constant marketing and selling. I'm grateful that this group gives me tools and the courage. — Lindy Severns

Hi! I've been waiting on you.

I'm Alyson Stanfield and bringing artists together is one of my favorite things to do, and I've been doing it for longer than I care to reveal.

Artists have become life-long friends at my live events and in my online courses. There's no reason to wait for when we can gather in person again because I have a community of inspiring, dedicated artists waiting to connect with you.

We are all working toward individual goals, but we use the community to stay focused and inspired.

I can't wait to welcome you!

Frequently Asked Questions

What's included?

Community members receive access to the following:

  • Monthly Community Connections with Alyson
  • Monthly Studio Talks with Vanessa
  • Get It Done Days with Suzanne
  • Community challenges
  • Weekly emails to stay focused
  • Conversations in our forum

We also have a learning path option for members who want access to our learning center, planning sessions, and additional live sessions. Email us for info about the learning path.

What if I need to cancel?

All subscriptions automatically renew, with a reminder sent to you before the first scheduled renewal date. (It's a great idea to write your Art Biz Connection anniversary on your calendar.) You may cancel your membership at any point before your next scheduled payment.

What if I want to upgrade?

We think you're going to love the activity and quality of members in The Art Biz Connection. If you try it out and decide you'd like to upgrade to an annual membership, a mastermind, or our seasonal learning programs, we'll be thrilled. Just email us and we'll make it happen.

How do I know if this is right for me?

Our community membership is right for you if you crave connection, but don't need the lessons and training that are part of our seasonal programs.

If you are starting out and don't yet have the business foundation, I urge you to enroll in what we refer to as the learning path (seasonal learning programs). But start with this membership now. You will have an opportunity to upgrade your community membership to the learning path.

Why don't you use Facebook groups?

I get it. Facebook is easy. You are already there and know how to use it. But Facebook is also the cause of too much noise and distraction. Never mind the fact that it is constantly mining your data.

I selected Mighty Networks to help my clients and students focus on what is important.

What's your refund policy?

Please make sure you read everything here and understand what you are receiving. If you sign up for the monthly or annual membership and are unhappy with your purchase, you may request a full refund within 14 days.

Can I join anytime?

Short answer: No. We open up several times a year.
