Welcome to Artsy Challenge!
“Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises..”
What is Artsy Challenge?
Artsy Challenge is an invite to join in on a fun, new, and exciting creative journey that can lead to something big.
It is a string of opportunities for you to:
Come out of your shell and express your creative self
in the best way you possibly can, regardless of how you view yourself and your creative ability, and despite not having put together something artistic by any standards
Make your creative undertakings profitable.
Build foundational blocks for your creative expression
to take wings toward an entrepreneurial venture.
Create something that you can be proud of!
If what you imagine scares you, stop.
Let not fear hold you back.
Instead, consider it as your playground. Be here in the moment, have fun, and enjoy the rides.
You're not in this alone. Instead, you'll be supported by like-minded people.
Besides, the creative process is your own.
You have your space all to yourself.
Perfection has no place in this.
Uniqueness and authenticity does.
What does it take for all this?

Who is Artsy Challenge for?
Meet the stars of Artsy Challenge.
"I am creative in an unusual kind of way. If faced with a situation, I can whip up, almost effortlessly, various ways to deal with it. Although I love creative stuff, not a drop of creativity runs in my blood. However, I dream of doing artsy stuff and delight in buying - even hoarding - art supplies. I'm scared though. Can I do it? I don't know how. One day, I'll get to it. One day..."
"I am quite an artist. I doodle, sketch, paint, design, sew, and... you name it! When coloring books were trendy, I created and colored my designs. I dream of developing my line of products to sell. I spend a huge amount of time, money, and energy to improve my craft but lack focus. Because I easily get distracted, I jump from one creative project to another."
"I run an online business, mostly in the self-development, health and wellness niches. I sell digital and physical products in my website and other platforms and have taken on coaching clients. I haven't considered and explored the idea of diversifying my existing products in creative ways that can possibly fulfill my clients' needs or reach out to new ones."

What can you expect from Artsy Challenge?
Artsy Challenge has four parts to it.
This is the preparatory stage of the entire Artsy Challenge. You may be super excited and so fired up to get into action mode in the second challenge. Not yet. In anything, you need proper preparation. This not to hold you back with "paralysis by analysis." It is to help with seeing a bigger picture and set you on the right path.
"By failing to prepare, you prepare to fail." ~Benjamin Franklin
This is the creative stage of the Artsy Challenge. You can be creative every day doing one project after another. This stage follows the same track; however, it will will focus on one and only one type of creative project that shall have been identified at the first stage. Also, it will have a duration of 21 days, which, as they say, is the time to build up a healthy habit.
"We have to be willing to do whatever it takes." ~Erin Burnett
This is the expansion stage of the Artsy Challenge. Creating tens or hundreds of products is pointless if they don't lead to profitability and sustainability. Your products must find their way to your market and it has to carry you through for a long time.
"Always look beyond what you can see." ~Mark A. Copper
This is the show-and-tell stage of the Artsy Challenge. Events shall be organized to showcase the products that participants of the Challenge shall have created. Beyond the exhibit is creating opportunities for participants to build their subscriber base, get connected with potential buyers and joint venture partners, and earn income.
"Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen." ~Brene Brown
Artsy Challenge is a work in progress.
Although its concept has been drawn out, it is not cast in stone but is designed to be as flexible as possible in order to:
- capture and amplify best practices
- fill in the gaps
- identify other essentials that have been overlooked
- more importantly, be more responsive to the needs of participants.
Lastly, as James Taylor, an American singer-songwriter and guitarist, once said ...
"I can't thank you enough for showing up. It's not the same without you."
Please join me in this important challenge!
