This program was built as a missing, middle life support for Adult Aspiring, Established, or, "Re-Establising," BIPOC Artists to have space and guidance to simply plan. We want to help individuals build their life up and get past that stage of the Starving Artist.
There is "beauty in the struggle," but we want artists to also create from a place of security and joy.
Participants who choose VividBlackPaint LIFE Plan Program will commence on a 1 year journey.
Enrollees will follow the structure provided by the Vivid LIFE Plans Workbook and Curriculum, and with the support of their Paint Ambassadors, OR, Peer Collaborators, begin a guided journey through the 4 LIFE stages of Personal and Professional Growth described below.
use the opportunity to grow your skills, develop their interests and begin collaborating with their Paint Ambassador or Peer Collaborator
work with your Paint Ambassador or Peer Collaborator to begin applying what you have learned to then develop the vision for a career, project, or Venture
most goals require a level of financial earning and spending, you will work with your Paint Ambassador or Peer Collaborator to secure funds or an appropriate apprenticeship, internship, or job, and, develop a better understanding of what your products or skills are worth, which builds the language to advocate for it
LIFE Plan participants will be expected to enrich others who may have not yet found their way by leading a workshop, leading a discussion, collecting helpful resources or tips to be made available to others, or by becoming a Paint Ambassador themselves
BIPOC Artists, Peer Collaborators, and Potential Ambassadors can choose to enroll in the program with a previously established mentor/mentee/peer and use the program as an accountability tool.
This programming is Absolutely FREE and will be delivered in conjunction with various discussion forums and groups, fun activities, and workshops focused on developing tools to better understand Your Personal Vision of Success.
