I am happy to offer this six class special for a limited time.  There is an expected form of professional communication in the art world.  This course is not only about preparing for marketing and finding and nurturing your collectors.  It is full of professional tips and the appropriate way to present yourself to galleries, to funding agencies and for exhibition proposals to give you the best chance at success!  

I believe every artist can benefit from this basic and somewhat elusive information.  Also where do you begin with pricing, inventory and what about your first exhibition?  This course has all of these answers and is an excellent introduction to the essential information necessary to prepare you for your art career.  I wish you much success as you move forward into the professional art world.

Sincerely,Laara WilliamSen, Art educator, International professional painter

"It was sheer pleasure to connect with Laara over a zoom call for an hour’s consultation.  I was intrigued by her knowledge of art and cheerful demeanour.  She patiently took me through each artwork and discussed the process in detail. Under her expert guidance, an artist can look forward to building up his/her art language and advance in the career of fine arts with confidence."

"Having recently met Laara WilliamSen, I have had the good fortune to be the recipient of some of her critical writing. She is truly a master at her craft and I recommend her as a genuine authority on art with keen perceptions and the colorful language to describe it thoroughly. She, herself is an an artist whose paintings are themselves all about the paint so her own vantage point is one of actually doing, not merely observing. ...."

Margaret Zox Brown, Painter, New York, U.S.A.  


"Within a few weeks after entering a competition with an online art gallery that Laara had suggested, I won an International Art Award and will be published in their upcoming Journal!   As an Artist, one of the most challenging things is to know how to present yourself in the public domain and where to start. 

Being able to draw on the experience of such a renowned International Artist is priceless and Laara is such an approachable person with a genuine interest in your success which is hard to find." 

 In Warmth. Manya Welch, United Kingdom
