Guild Membership $45/year
Become Part of a Global Community of Artisans. At our Guild we believe in helping our members get greater exposure into the world of creativity. Our specialty is our publication Guildzine. As a member we offer four opportunities throughout the year to be featured in one or all of our quarterly publication releases. Every quarter we focus on a different aspect of your creative work and our goal is to showcase this through our publication sold on Blurg and Amazon. This is an amazing opportunity to help build your published portfolio, global credit with a professional world creative organization, and a tangible marketing tool when exhibiting, teaching, or performing. We welcome Artisans of all creative outlets (music, dance, visual arts, performing arts, videographers, authors) the list is endless. Connect with members from all over the world and become a part of a supportive global network.
Our Guild will create a personal webpage with nine images of your work, your artistic biography, personal picture and a link to your personal website if you have one, to be a featured artist on our website for one of the months following your registration. We strive to help all our members become recognized globally. In addition, if you choose too, we do offer your featured page to continue as a personal website at $25/month after your one month featured artist spot is up.
In addition to free features in our publication and a featured artist page for a month, we have three annual juried exhibitions out of our partnered gallery (The Art Department) in Scottsdale, AZ in which only members of AG can participate in. We welcome entries from all our members all over the globe. This is a great opportunity for our global members in other parts of the world exhibit in a prime artisan location in the Phoenix, AZ area of the United States. This is a great opportunity to get exposure as an artisan globally. At our guild we are constantly marketing to the public on a daily basis. We hope that in our efforts to help you gain recognition, and help with your Artisan businesses through our website and marketing programs, you help our guild get recognition through your sources also. We do appreciate all the support we have from our current members and business partners, and in exchange, the only thing we ask is if you could post our logo on your website or branding platforms as a proud member of our Artisans Guild.
For our local members, AG hosts monthly art journal gatherings for free. You can join us for a couple hours of creative journaling with other members of our guild. This is a relaxed and enjoyable time for us to collaborate and share our individual artistic style. We don't want to leave any of our members out, with that being said, if you are from another city or country we have some wonderful downloadable art journal fixins created by our very own founders for your to enjoy in our digital shop. We welcome you to create your very own pages of your art journal and share them on our closed Facebook Group @ Collaborating Thru Art (members only). Join our group and share your art in progress, completed works, journals, and your creative self.
Help us help you get the recognition your deserve. Our Artisans Guild offers artisan business classes to help you grow your artisan business. Currently we have 5 Tips in 5 Days, a program geared towards Artisans business practice by Global Creative Coach and CoFounder of our guild, Robyn McClendon. This course available to the public, however if you are a member of our guild you will get a huge 50% discount on this program offered on our community board.
Our Artisans Guild is very connected with their members, and in efforts to provide the best opportunities to you, we always welcome your suggestion and comments. Please feel free to connect with us if you have ideas for an exhibit, fundraiser, or event. We support our members and we are available to connect via skype, or google chat to speak with you personally.
Our Artisans Guild thanks you for considering these great opportunities. We are looking forward to providing support and services to better help our artisans succeed in their creative field.
