Art Career Success System

What if you had a system in place that takes the guesswork out of building a successful art career?

I’m Alyson Stanfield and I’ve been helping artists gain recognition and
sell more art since 2002.

With the Art Career Success System, I have identified the most important
aspects of a successful artist’s career
and have packaged them into a 4-course intensive study that includes

live interaction, group support, and loads of implementation time.

I can say with confidence it is 100% a result of what I’ve learned in the Art Career Success System.

The best part is that I know I haven’t learned everything yet. I look forward to putting into practice the skills I have learned as time goes on.

What I Want for All Success System Students

I want you to feel confident that you have what you need to share your art with the world.

I want you to be excited about using your art to connect with others.

I want you to be dedicated to the long-term commitment of a career.

I want you to embrace the many roles you will play as a successful artist.

Sounds great, but it’s a lot to commit to!

Yep, I know. And …
I see too many artists gathering information – often unimportant information –
rather than implementing what actually works.

You wouldn’t expect to master a new art form in a few weeks or months.
You certainly can’t expect to master a business in that time.
I have designed the Art Career Success System to give you the
time and space to build that mastery.

Wouldn’t it feel great to develop solid habits that last a lifetime?
You can’t do that in a month or two.

A career is different from a business because it’s a lifetime commitment.
You’re not in it to make a quick buck.

As a result of the Art Career Success System, I feel more confident about presenting myself as an artist.

I’ve gained 100 followers on Facebook, am committed to my studio time, have booked two shows, won “best of show”, and have sold 6 paintings!

It’s been a good 5 months! Thank you.

1 24 In-Depth Lessons
I personally coach you on each focus area in a series of short video recordings available according to the schedule. Each video is approximately 3-12 minutes and there are 4-7 videos per module.

I teach you what I have learned in more than sixteen years of helping artists build their careers and I answer any questions you have on the calls. You’ll complete assignments and simple worksheets that will be used as building blocks to help you succeed.

2 Written Transcripts of All Lessons
We learn differently when we read than when we listen. I want to make sure you know this stuff inside and out, so I’m providing the lessons in written form as well as audio.

3 Implementation Periods
There are 4-5 weeks between each program throughout the year and even longer over the holidays. We’re not going to leave you! This is when you will receive ACSS-only coaching calls, bonus lessons, and accountability checkins.

4 System Worksheets
The worksheets I’ve created for you will help you customize the lessons’ content for your situation. Each of these completed worksheets will contribute to your personalized success system.

5 Interaction with ACSS Peers
When you enroll in the full ACSS program, you have membership into a private Facebook group with your fellow ACSS artists – the same core group throughout the year. New people may come and go, but these committed souls will remain. This is where you can ask questions, celebrate progress, and share resources with one another.

6 Accountability
Students enrolled in the full Art Career Success System will submit accountability check-ins during the Implementation Periods.
7 Lifetime Access
 Students enrolled in the full ACSS receive lifetime access to the material.

Art Biz Coach Satisfaction Guarantee


I promise that if you do the work and apply the lessons, you will have a reliable system for your business and career that will last you for years to come. If not, I will refund 100% of your money.
