The Highest Quality, Professional Art Licensing Training Available

9 11 2013

CREATORSLOGO-2_3-smallThis week I’m full of enthusiasm after having just completed two new classes (with fantastic reviews), and with four coming up this week.  The Worldwide Creators’ Intensives, the training arm of All Art Licensing that has more than 30 classes and events specifically designed to provide detailed and expert training in the areas of licensing and marketing at an affordable price, is offering next week the most valuable Professional Art Licensing courses available in the marketplace.  I hope you will read some of the many testimonials that our classes have received.

The four-part Professional Art Licensing Series grew out of our original courses and have been fully updated and expanded for 2014.  It is designed for all creators looking to start or to establish a licensing business. Whether purchased separately, or with the series discount, these classes create a well-rounded and essential education in art licensing for the emerging business artist, cartoonist, graphic designer, animator, or fine artist. Those attending the live events will be able to get their questions answered directly. However, you DO NOT need to be present to attend the courses—a complete PowerPoint Presentation and MP3 Audio File will be provided to everyone who registers. Having these complete files is a great benefit, even for those attending the live event, because we are known for providing so much detailed information, that most attendees need and want to listen to the classes several times in order to absorb all of the information.

Here is the registration link, and I’ve also listed all the class details below:
