DELVE Toolkit 1:1


The DELVE Toolkit is a personalized, one-on-one coaching program for artists and creative entrepreneurs.
We help you learn how to best communicate what you do—
in person, in writing and online.

 

Our goal is to help you build sustainable skills so that you can:

  • clearly share your work with your ideal audience
  • maximize your potential and productivity so you can reach your goals
  • develop long-lasting good habits
  • have an effective grasp on how to sustain a solid marketing and communication practice for years to come
 

"I got my art business in order!  I needed help with time management, writing, and applying to artist residencies and call for entries.  I haven’t seen anything like The DELVE Toolkit that felt as personal, realistic, and accessible. Being accountable for my time on a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly basis helped me further understand where I want to go and how I can get there, in a realistic, manageable manner. Talking and writing about myself has significantly improved, which will impact my interactions with new people as well as helping me achieve residencies and entries that I apply for.  I’m also able to keep myself accountable and to see what I actually accomplish versus what I think I’m accomplishing.  The Overview package was a great kickstart and I could see myself benefiting from further Toolkits in the future when I’m looking to go to the next level with my business. It has been very helpful!" – Liz Robb, artist

"Like many artists, I worked independently in isolation and was in need of feedback on my work as well as guidance on emerging as a professional artist. Kind Aesthetic, you gave me the tools needed to begin the process of refining my work, finding community and presenting my work in a professional manner. I know I've said this before, but you've literally changed my life."  –Jason, artist

Having worked in the career development department at an established art school, I've explored all kinds of artist career development books, videos and events. If you are looking to be spoon-fed 'career success' speeches, DELVE is not the place to go. The DELVE toolkit is both a guide and sounding board that is tailored to your specific situation and requires you invest your own time and critical thinking—allowing for actual problem solving and actual results."  – Kat, artist


3 Distinct Packages to choose from:

No matter the stage in your career, you might need guidance, support, and professional, honest feedback about how your work is communicated to the world. You may be going through a transition, you want outside feedback about your work, or you’re just not able to grasp why you’re not able to achieve your goals fast enough.

This 4-week program is the perfect overview of your skills and your work in relation to the 9 DELVE Tools, and will leave you confident and excited to take action on a carefully crafted, personalized plan that will help you reach your goals. READ MORE>

You have a big project (or two) ahead of you: an exhibition, a new website to build, a side business to launch, or maybe you will be applying to some major opportunities—you tell us. It’s hard to work in isolation and you need professional, honest feedback and accountability in order to make sure that your work pays off.

This 6-week program is completely tailored to you and your goals. From the start we will help you outline an action plan to reach your major goals, what your strengths are and what’s holding you back.

Running your own art practice, whether full or part-time, can be overwhelming. We specialize in helping you identify your audience and better communicate what you do– in person, online and in writing. Sometimes we all need a check-in with an expert to validate all of the things we are doing right, and the things that we need to improve. During our 75 minute call we will give you honest, clear, hands-on feedback on how your work is communicated from an outside perspective.

The 9 DELVE Tools


The 9 DELVE Tools


These 9 DELVE Tools should be in your communication toolkit. Here’s what we’ll cover in our time working together:

When people ask, “What do you do?” do you have trouble answering, or tend to ramble on? When there’s a strong story behind your work, it’s much easier for people to hold on to it, remember it, and want more of it. What is your unique story? Talking and writing about your work in an exciting and confident way is the best way to get people interested, for you to sell more, and to open doors to new opportunities.

Your website is the virtual hub of your professional life, and you need a place where people can go to find out more about you and be wowed. It’s time to harness it into a powerful tool. We can help you improve your current site or coach you while you create a brand new one.

Is your idea of spreading the word about your upcoming show, event, sale or product launch calling your mom and your best friend and hoping for the best? It’s time to shout your ideas, work and amazing events from the rooftops because we promise it’s more fun, and easier to fit it into your day, than you think. We’ll help you integrate a cohesive marketing plan into your schedule.

Do you have trouble writing about your work, your products or the services you offer? We’ll help you find your voice and effectively write about your great ideas in order to get what you want: an engaged audience, buyers, grants, shows, and, of course, world domination. We’ll cover everything: artist statements, applications, product descriptions, promotional materials, blog entries, newsletters, marketing outreach, and more.

Frustrated with how you spend your time? You’re not alone. Getting the good work done is hard, and we can show you how to be more productive with the time you have and hold you accountable.
 

 

Is planning for a huge goal paralyzing, but you know that you have the skills to accomplish it? Work with us to create a strategy to make progress on your work everyday to achieve big outcomes. We'll help you achieve clarity and focused direction.

Does your work look beautiful in person but lackluster in print and online? We can provide tips and training on how to create gorgeous imagery that you can do yourself. Believe it! We’ll show you how to get the best art and product photography and create a stunning visual presentation of your work.


 

Do you know that you need to build your community to get more opportunities, but maybe you don’t know where to look or it’s uncomfortable getting out there? Take the leap into new worlds with us where you’ll meet like-minded people and grow your practice. You can’t work in isolation in order to reach your goals.

Do you have an exhibition, open studio, trade show or other big event coming up (congratulations!) and have no clue where to begin preparing? Are you selling a creative product and have a hunch that the reason you have so much back stock is that the packaging is not up to snuff? Let’s get to work in assuring your work is  presented in the best way possible to the world.

1:1 DELVE Toolkit Packages


1:1 DELVE Toolkit Packages


 

No matter the stage in your career, you might need guidance, support, and professional, honest feedback about how your work is communicated to the world. You may be going through a transition, you want outside feedback about your work, or you’re just not able to grasp why you’re not able to achieve your goals fast enough.

This 4-week program is the perfect overview of your skills and your work, and will leave you confident and excited to take action on a carefully crafted, personalized plan that will help you reach your goals. We’ll cover every one of the 9 Tools in the DELVE Toolkit over the 4 weeks so you can know with confidence what is already working and what you need to improve.

How it works:

  • you complete a weekly worksheet (2-3 hours of your time per week)
  • we talk for one laser-focused hour every week about your answers
  • after our calls you get follow-up notes and task lists
  • you get unlimited email access to us over the four weeks to, for example: work on any extra writing assignments, get feedback on any projects or deadlines, or to hold you accountable to your time
  • the questions can be hard (no pain no gain) but our conversations are all about you, your goals and overcoming the stuff that gets in your way
  • we help you brainstorm productive and positive ways to transform the way you communicate your work to your ideal audience
  • we hold you accountable
  • we truly care about your success, so you can count on clear, honest feedback

I needed outside input on how to articulate my work both verbally and on paper. I was struggling to find a common thread in my past and present bodies of works, making my artist presentation convoluted and preventing my career from progressing in the direction I desired. Now I feel much more confident about my artist statement and what my work in general is looking to do. I have a set of actions and achievable goals. As a result of the 1:1 DELVE Toolkit I have a large amount of clear, cohesive writing I can simply plug into my applications.

Having worked in the career development department at an established art school, I’ve explored all kinds of artist career development books, videos and events. If you are looking to be spoon-fed ‘career success’ speeches DELVE is not the place to go. The DELVE toolkit is both a guide and sounding board that is tailored to your specific situation and requires you invest your own time and critical thinking - allowing for actual problem solving and actual results.

You have a big project (or two) ahead of you: an exhibition, a new website to build, a side business to launch, or maybe you will be applying to some major opportunities—you tell us. It’s hard to work in isolation and you need professional, honest feedback and accountability in order to make sure that your work pays off.

Doing the 1:1 DELVE Toolkit made the non art-making side of being an artist seem more manageable. It forced me to really sit down and write about my work, set goals and timetables for achieving them, and then actually take the plunge and do the work. I think of Andrea as an art coach. She’s in your corner, she wants you to make progress, and she helps you do it. Andrea is very hands on and matter of fact, and she understands my work.
— Miriam, visual artist

How it works:

This six-week program is completely tailored to you and your goals. From the start we will help you outline an action plan to reach your major goals, what your strengths are and what’s holding you back.

We talk every week for one hour to make sure you are on the right timeline to success, we are your sounding board, and you’ll get personalized technical advice, editing of your writing, and time management coaching along the way. Whatever you need. You’ll get more done in these 6 weeks than you ever thought possible with the DELVE ladies on your side.

How it works:

Before the call we will ask you to fill out a worksheet, which would take you around one hour to complete. We will cover how you speak and write about your work, yourself as an artist and professional, and how all of your marketing materials look and the writing that you share. You’ll leave the call with an action plan to move forward with confidence.


70 minute call, $175
