Art Stretch Facebook Group with Roben-Marie Smith

Merging ART and BIZ for the Creative Entrepreneur

Want to take your art to the next level?

1. You are a hobby artist who wants to make the move toward entreprenuership or you are already moving in that direction.

2. You are looking for support and want to make meaningful connections within an encouraging community of business-minded artists.  

4. You want a place to share ideas to help grow your creative online business, because it is kind of lonely inside that creative bubble, right?

5. You are interested in learning ways to leverage your own work to "stretch" it into products your customers will love.

3. You have the art part down, but need help with the tech.

“Roben-Marie’s regular contact with her followers, her amazing spirit and willingness to share and engage is truly inspiring.”
