        Illuminating. My major concern was getting hacked, losing coins or NFT’s. I wanted a more structured and stepped process. This workshop filled in some major gaps!

        Cohort-based courses are an efficient way to get introduced to a field, so as I was exploring it on my own, I thought it'd be best to find someone to accelerate my learning. I was surprised at how much fun it is to play in this space.”

        Enlightening! I didn't anticipate how supportive everyone would be! It has given me the confidence to be creative in a way I did not anticipate prior to the course.

        I met MintFace in person and had connected with him on LinkedIn, so I had seen the kind of work he was doing. I was interested in NFTs and I knew he would be delivering a good course.

Explore your art back catalog and evaluate how to best leverage the new possibilities that art with a digital history can unlock.

The emerging digital artist economy is at a similar stage as it was for musicians when they launched their first Internet company selling MP3 hardware online in 1998. Smart contracts and blockchain are transforming the earning potential of artists in front of our eyes.

Course syllabus

01

Discover The New Frontier Of Digital Art Shows

No one buys art to show to their cat. A new generation of art collectors have swapped wall space for digital wallet space. We will explore the exciting new digital galleries that art collectors visit to buy art and sell out shows in the Metaverse.

02

Shortlist Artwork For Your First Digital Collection

Bring your back catalogue of art to work on or start afresh with an idea you'd like to bring to life. In this workshop you will shortlist artworks with appeal to the art collectors you know and digital art collectors eager to see your work for the first time. 


03

Mint Your First Artwork Digitally

After this workshop you will have minted your first digital artwork on your own smart contract, set up your digital wallet and chosen a Web 3.0 domain name that you’ll be known by.

04

Pricing and Commission

Creating a pricing and commission strategy can attract new fans or repel your existing one. In this session, we will explore price setting for art in the digital space that builds on the reputation you've established to date.


05

Launch Your Art Collection

We will deconstruct the many ways to launch your art collection so that early supporters of your work are rewarded and new buyers are attracted in.

❤️ Human Hearts Beat 🧠 Technical Heads

We won’t weigh you down with jargon. Spend more time with the outstanding artists in your cohort while gaining the minimum technical confidence needed to get your digital art collection setup and ready for showing.

Building Not Watching

Workshops aren't lectures. MintFace won’t just talk at you, he’ll engage you and leave plenty of time to work together and make meaningful progress towards launching your first digital artwork collection.

Learn with a Cohort of Artists

These are interactive seminars where we learn together. No massive lectures in hushed lecture halls. This course is designed to facilitate peer learning and interaction through artist discussion groups, an engaged art community in Discord, and projects that nudge you towards success.

Accountability and Feedback

Consult your artist peers in accountability pods. Hold each other to a high standard and make progress in real-time.
