If you don’t value and invest in your creativity, who will?

You know life is short. It’s why you choose creativity. It’s why you are here, today.

The problem is sometimes life still gets in the way.

There are always “things to do.” And besides which, what’s the point of creating unless we plan to sell or share it with others?

You are part of a system that tells you your interest in the arts is not important nor valuable.

Despite a deep knowing that your creative voice needs to speak, our society communicates that art is unimportant. Thus, when we choose our art over family, what does that say about our priorities?!

My name is Carrie and I created Artist Strong to help you embrace your creative interests.

You can be a working artist, a hobbyist, or someone who has never had an art class. This space is for your inspiration and motivation. I will help you develop accountability in your life to honor your creative dreams.

I’m ready for this world to change.

Artist Strong Appreciation

Carrie Brummer is living her creative life with so much passion and intention that I was compelled to reach out not only to soak up her colorful rays, but to convey the impact she has had through her website www.ArtistStrong.com on my creative social work practice.

I have found Carrie to be compassionate, caring, talented and giving. Artist Strong is jam packed with resources and creative ideas to jump start not only practice, but life. In just a short amount of time, Carrie has already empowered me with a variety of resources that will impact the sustainability of my business.

I am looking forward to learning, growing and collaboratively creating a better world with Carrie as an ally in my social change work.

I was initially skeptical about taking an online art class, but decided to give it a try. The Art Detox: Book Art was inspiring! I am totally energized and fearless – and having so much fun. Warning: It’s highly addictive!!!

Thank you, Carrie, for being such a wonderful and generous teacher/coach/facilitator – for providing so many ideas, techniques, and resources that will last long beyond the timeframe of the course.

I cannot say enough good things about the Artist Strong Facebook group and the Webinars hosted by Carrie Brummer. I am a self taught artist so there are technical things and practical things that I did not know to learn…until Artist Strong.

My favorite webinars so far have been about figure drawing and learning about value.  It has made such a huge difference in my growth as an artist. I also appreciate that the Facebook group is such a diverse group of artists who gently give feedback and encouragement.

If you are looking for a place where you can be safe to learn and try new techniques while being supported by other artists then Artist Strong is the place for you!  Thank you Carrie for everything you do to make Artist Strong a wonderful place to learn and grow.
