3 ARTISTS WHO GOT RESULTS WITH “SMART ART ACADEMY”

 

“Thanks for sharing your insights. Your writing is well-researched, thoughtful and inspirational, and even as a seasoned, professional artist I have found it helpful and refreshing.I rarely endorse anyone, ever, for much of anything. I'd gladly pay whatever it cost to take my art to a new level. His approach did. I see no reason it wouldn't work for other artists, either established or not. Consider this an endorsement. That should speak volumes”

- Alison Greyson

 
"Much appreciation for the ‘timely’ information and motivation. I have been scratching my head, often for years, as to what is out of balance in my painting.

Thanks to you, my passion to make and market my art is alive again. Much Thanks.”

- Daryl Grant

 

Great advice here. Your advice sounds really practical for those of us who hope to make a living creating art. I started painting about a year ago, and it’s been an amazing activity for my free time. I recommend Gary's course if you're just starting out, OR if you're ready to take your art to the next level.”

- Martha Forbins

THE BOTTOM LINE

While I can’t guarantee you’ll get the same results (or any results whatsoever) – nobody can promise this and be telling the truth – some of the strategies I teach in Smart Art Academy helped these artists turn their art careers around. And now you can learn these strategies too.

It might sound complicated, but it’s not...
Smart Art Academy is a unique and effective system to grow your art skills in a sustainable way.
I’ll get to the full details in a second – but first, a little backstory...

DO YOU LIKE A GOOD SECRET? ME TOO.

Secrets.

We all have one (or maybe more). But regardless of how many you are using right now in your art, I have a lot of them to share with you in my online course Smart Art Academy.

Hi, Gary Bolyer here. I’m an award-winning, professional landscape artist – and I help other artists find their way through the art skills learning maze by sharing my best-kept secrets.

These are trade secrets I've held so close to my heart that I've almost forgotten how powerful they are.
And they are secrets that you can put to work right away for your own art.


THINGS CHANGED - ALMOST OVERNIGHT

Once I learned to focus on the right things (and ignore everything else) my entire life changed.

I remember one very cold morning in February, I checked my sales reports before heading off to work. I’d made more money while I was asleep than I was going to make all day shackled to a desk.

A few short months later, I quit to paint full time. Now, I get to spend all day doing what I love, with the people I love. Thanks to this hard work, I was finally able to quit my day job and move my family out of our cramped apartment.

Now, I get to spend all day with the people I care about, and I can paint when it suits me.

If you could do the same, what would that mean for you?

Never worrying about getting reviews, or securing advertising, or making sales. Being in complete control of your career and never having to rely on anyone else. Because for me, it means more than I can ever put down in words. And, as an artist, that’s a pretty big deal.

HERE'S WHAT I DISCOVERED

It doesn’t matter whether you are a painter, photographer, sculptor, digital artist, illustrator, graphic designer, or craft artist – this program works.

It works because you learn the foundational principles of design and art theory.

The best part?

You don’t need to put a new work out every day to keep progressing forward with your skills – because you’ve already built up a strong foundation of solid understanding that keeps you centered and on course.

In short, you finally have a way to more effectively grow your art skills – and more accurately critique the work you’ve already done – as well as skyrocket your results when you start your next work.

You spend months bleeding over your work to get ready for prime time – you shouldn’t have to spend the rest of your free time trying to figure out what to keep and what to toss.

And you don’t have to. I’ve developed a system you can use that works – regardless of the types of art you make.

TELL ME IF THIS SOUNDS FAMILIAR: YOU THINK TO YOURSELF, "HOW DO I FIND MORE ART BUYERS?"

Should I spend more time on social media? Should I do more gallery openings? Where can I find advertisers who will actually help me grow my audience? Are my prices too low or too high? How can I get more interest in my work? Why is nobody subscribing to my mailing list? What should I be focusing on?

And, most importantly, how can I create meaningful and long-lasting relationships with REAL fans who will buy my work? Cue brain overload...

IF THIS SOUNDS LIKE YOU, YOU'RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE

Do you spend too much time checking your sales dashboard? Do you waste hours of your time trying to figure out social media? I know I did. At least, until I figured out what actually works and shifted my focus. Once I did this, my art sales exploded - giving me a six-figure income that earns me revenue and new art buyers 24/7. I haven't looked back.

And guess what? I'm going to show you exactly how you can too. No "fluffy bunny" thinking here, only proven, ethical, and easy-to-replicate marketing techniques that will boost your visibility on the internet and grow your artist platform – putting you in direct control of your success.

LET ME TELL YOU...

Nothing feels better than seeing sales coming in overnight and every single day – without having to lift a finger. When eager art buyers email you to tell you how much they love your work – begging you to get the next work out... it’s the best feeling in the world.

You know why? Because you get to see the positive impact your work has on the world. And the extra money in your pocket is a nice bonus too.
Plus, in addition to reaping the rewards myself – here’s some results from other artists following some of my strategies:
“This course of yours means more to me than I can say. It’s THE solution to every challenge I’ve faced with learning to draw. Every frustration I’ve experienced with local in-person courses I’ve taken is resolved with your format. Every question answered, every confusion clarified. You’ve done a MAGNIFICENT job. All that, and you’ve made it FUN! So thank you thank you thank you!”

- Helen F., Oil Painter, landscapes, seascapes

“Thank you so much for your amazing videos. Gosh, you are an amazing teacher. You pack so much information in such a bite-sized video, that too in such an entertaining way, it’s fantastic. Clearly TONS of effort have gone into making the videos."

- John H., Watercolor artist

“Thank you so much for making these videos. I don’t know if you realize this, but you’re bringing a ton of joy to a small army of people all over the place.”

- John R., Illustrator, Graphic Designer

SO, WHY SHOULD YOU USE A PROVEN SYSTEM?

REASON #1: No more wasted hours with trial and error. The system I will show you will grow your audience and show you what works when it comes to selling art online. And once you've set it up, it will run on autopilot, meaning you will see results 24/7 with minimal maintenance.

REASON #2: More fans and followers means more visibility = more sales = more revenue = more freedom! If you aim to be in your studio full time, or to grow your business, this system will get you there.
REASON #3: You don’t need to be a technical wizard. I will take you through everything step by step, in extreme detail, so you don’t have to worry about whether or not it will work for you.

INTRODUCING Smart Art Academy PREMIUM TRAINING

"Smart Art Academy" is a unique online training course which will take you by the hand and show you how to implement a comprehensive art marketing system - designed to get you selling more art, attracting more raving fans, and exploding your artist platform.

Specifically, it will show you how to drive more traffic to your art, how to convert that traffic into raving fans, and how to effectively sell to your new fans - without being "salesey".

AND NOW YOU'VE GOT THREE OPTIONS

OPTION #1 – do nothing. Obviously, this isn’t going to get you results.

OPTION #2 – trial and error. Sure, you can take the concepts I’ve shown you already and take the DIY route. I’m 100% sure that if you spend 40 hours per week and several thousand dollars figuring out what works (like I did once I figured this out), you’ll get some results. But there is a quicker and easier way.
OPTION #3 – my favorite option: use the Smart Art Academy program to boost your visibility instantly and start growing your artist platform right now. Forget about wasting time and money on tactics and strategies that don't work - I've already done all the hard work figuring this out for you.


I'VE GONE THROUGH ALL THE "FIGURING OUT" SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO

Can I guarantee you sky-high results? Well, no. Of course I can’t. Nobody can. But I can give you the exact (down to the smallest detail) blueprint, which works with online art marketing in any genre.

This is because the strategies in Smart Art Academy are different. Lots of marketing folks out there say, “Just post more content,” or, “Just find your audience and build your brand.”
But they don’t tell you exactly what to do step-by-step. There’s nobody out there who says, “Do this, step 1, step 2, step 3”.

THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU WILL BE GETTING WITH "SMART ART ACADEMY". THE EXACT, RELIABLE, ETHICAL, AND PROVEN STEP-BY-STEP SYSTEM. NO CONFUSION. NO AMBIGUITY. COMPLETE HAND HOLDING. TELLING YOU EXACTLY WHAT TO DO AND WALKING YOU THROUGH THE ENTIRE PROCESS

HERE'S HOW IT BREAKS DOWN

Getting the Right Artistic Mindset - In this opening module I give you my best insights on getting and keeping the right attitude about your work. Everything is covered here, from overcoming creative block to honing your artistic mindset. Follow this seasoned advice and find the true spirit in your work. I highly recommend that you read this entire section before beginning the working modules.

(Module 1) Drawing 1 - Fundamentals of Drawing. Module 1 will focus on drawing basics and is the foundation of the entire course. Drawing is the key to overall success as a painter. Good drawing is the foundation of good painting. Painting is just drawing with a brush in color. And you can’t hide bad drawing with good color.

(Module 2) Drawing - Intermediate Drawing. Module 2 takes your solid foundation and builds from there. You will learn many intermediate to advanced drawing concepts and strategies. Drawing the human form, including portraits, is included in this exciting section.

(Module 3) Painting 1 - Fundamentals of Painting. Module 3 is where the course fun really takes off as this is where you break out your brushes and start sketching and working in color.

(Module 4) Painting 2 - Intermediate Painting. Module 4 is where everything that you learned in the previous 3 modules all comes together.

As soon as you purchase, you will get immediate access (via user name and password) to the full online training.
