Come along as I am preparing my own solo show in
Paris, France. In this "hot and live" course i will share everything I have
learned so that you can organize you own successful show!
From February 20th to June 27th, 2023
But you'll see it's ok if you arrive a bit late. You are welcome!
✓ Weekly 10 min live videos (with replays available) every Monday at 11 am EST (5 pm Paris Time) from February 20th to June 26th. That's approximately 3h of tutorial videos!
✓ Regular posts with important tips and pitfalls to avoid.
✓ Templates for important emails, press releases, invitations, lists of things to not forget, and a complete calendar of actions in the proper sequence.
✓ Weekly prompts so that you can start RIGHT AWAY to work on YOUR next solo show.
✓ Opportunities to ask me questions on the discussion platform
✓ Lifetime access to the content (and its updates)
✓ Lifetime access to the group discussion: you will be able to journey along with other committed artists who are organizing their own solo shows.
GET RESULTS: Everything I will share will gear so that YOU TOO CAN DO IT.
After the course, I will offer a 90 min group session to address all your questions regarding your next solo show. The date is to be decided: it will be either the end of June or after the summer holiday to give you some time for integration. The price of this session will be Can$75 (US$56 or 53€).
✓ Which galleries to work with and which not to work with!
✓ What to look for if you exhibit in an alternative space. Your show does not
have to be in a gallery but it has to have the right elements.
✓ How to secure support from influential people (like getting an Academy
Award actress or the leader of the Green party of Canada) and why you
should do this.
✓ How to find partners to help with publicity: For this upcoming exhibition in
Paris, I have multiple organizations with 10,000 to 100,000 followers who agreed to share information about my exhibition on their platforms.
✓ How to contact the media and what to tell them so they will want to talk about your work.
✓ How to pay for all your expenses so you can pour wine for your guests at the show opening without worrying about money!
✓ How to boost sales during your show.
✓ How to use social media to bring attention to your event and whether you need to pay for ads (you don’t!).
✓ And much more!
✓ Choosing the wrong venue (I’ve done that)
✓ Overpaying the printer for my catalog (I’ve done that)
✓ Not communicating properly to announce the event (I’ve done that)
✓ Wasting time sending emails to the wrong people (I’ve done that)
✓ Trying to get support from influential people is not the smartest way (I’ve done that)
✓ Not using social media effectively (have done that too)
✓ Doing everything alone (I learned that we don’t have to do that)
I don’t have enough paintings to even think about exhibiting!
Most galleries book 2 or 3 years in advance. I take 3 years to prepare a body of work so it will be good for you to paint while being strategic and thinking about your next show.
I am not an artist but I organize art events (music, dance etc…)!
Everything that I am doing to organize a solo show is exactly the same work as preparing any art event. If you are a musician or a dancer this course will open up your world of possibilities!
I have so much on my plate right now!
Can you find 10 min a week for 5 months? I have tons on my plate right now and am creating the course so that it can be manageable at a time that I am the busiest ever. If I can deliver the course, if this is information you would like to learn, I am sure you can keep up with it too!
I don’t want to purchase another course that will sit around!
I know what you are talking about! I have modules sitting around from courses I have taken too! This course is “hot and live”. You are not alone, we are all in together, there is a platform to chat and share our progress even when the course is over. This is not a do-it-alone course; it will be a friendly and fun way to learn while not feeling like you are taking a course.
I don’t even know if I ever want to exhibit, I don’t think it’s for me!
If you are an artist, seeing all your art hanging on beautiful walls is a high. I encourage you to do it because it is good for you and good for the world to see your art. Organizing a solo show is the best way to showcase your work to the world.
It sounds like it’s all about who you know, I don’t know anybody!
I didn’t know anybody either when I started. I live in the middle of nowhere in Canada, I don’t schmooze at cocktails and networking events (it’s too far to drive!). I do everything from my cabin in the woods.
I won't be able to attend the Monday live videos at 11 am EST (5 pm Paris Time).
The whole course is live but will also be available as a replay in case you miss anything or wish to follow it later.
✓ I want to give you the opportunity to follow me for over four months as I prepare for my solo exhibition in Paris.
✓ I will deliver you all the information you need to ensure the success of your own solo show from beginning to end.
✓ I will be teaching you from 20 years of experience, which is rare in the world of art coaches.
✓ You will hear about my ups and down, my nerves, and my excitement: it will be real.
As you know, I started as a starving artist who was committed to making it work. I know exactly what it is like to live on a tight budget. For this reason, I care about making all my services to artists affordable.
The price for this course is Can$150 (US$112 or 104€).
After the course, I will offer a 90 min group session to address all your questions regarding your next solo show. The price of this session will be Can$75 (US$56 or 53€).
Your investment will save you a lot of time and headaches figuring it all out. I will hold nothing back – you will get everything on a silver platter. Plus, I think it will be a fun way to learn.
Because I messed up so many things before I got it right, I can assure you that you will make way more than Can$150 in your life, in the next year, and even in the next month because of the information I will share in this course.
Since I am completely sure that this course will be awesome... I am ready to reimburse you 100% if you feel it wasn't worth it. Basically, your decision is risk-free!
Overall when you come a long with me for over 4 months, you will learn not only information but also a lot from the overall 'transmission'. The key to success in your career is also an art in itself. It’s an attitude, a vibe, it’s little details on how you write an email, when you reach out and when to follow up, and how you share on social media.
In my 20 years of experience, I've learned that it's almost the same amount of work to do a small show in the wrong venue as a magnificent exhibition in a great space. This Hot and Live Course will help you to think BIG!
