1. How did you discover Artpreneur Program?
I got introduced to the Artpreneur program through a forwarded WhatsApp message shared by my father. When I first saw the message, it was like the same old marketing pattern. But something made me open the attached link and go through the website of the Artpreneur program, That was my turning point when I came across the Hall of Fame page, where I saw many success stories of students, and one among them was the inspiring story of a senior at my school who is an Artpreneur himself. Immediately I connected with him and we had a long conversation in which we discussed the program in detail, which pretty much resonated with my career, and he also reminded me of my passion for art. After 2–3 days of conversation with my senior, I had a good feeling about the program and decided to join, fingers crossed.
2. As an aspiring CMA candidate, what made you decide to take a huge leap of faith and shift to a creative career?
I joined the CMA because it is a high-profile career opportunity in my field. I cleared my foundation and appeared for Inter. But I was not happy with what I was doing, and it didn't give me satisfaction. That is when I was introduced to the Artpreneur Program, and with a huge leap of faith in my passion for art and the inspiring works of my senior and other students, I challenged myself to join the course and trusted the process.
3. You started as a complete amateur. Did you believe it was possible to become a professional in the Creative Industry within 9 months?
When I started the program, I had only my passion for art and beginner-level drawing skills. I was clueless and skeptical about my creative career. I was doubtful: how can a person become a professional in a period of nine months? But eventually, after the initial days of the program, I experienced the magic of the process and started seeing changes in my creative thinking, which gave me a boost to move forward. The trusted process and the hard work paid off with a beautiful professional career.
4. What helped you overcome the challenges you faced when you had serious doubts about whether you would be able to succeed in the program and your career?
I had back-to-back self-doubts during every stage of the program. Although it badly shattered my mind, I am thankful that it has cleared many blocks with the help of the journaling process, my creations, and the constant trust I had in my educator, Vivek, and my mentor, Balaji sir. Through introducing us to a topic, curriculum, or art style, captivating our interest, and guiding us through a process to approach it, we are empowered to offer our own interpretation. Then, with keen observation and guidance, the educator helps us overcome any flaws. This process has enabled me to maintain my individuality.
5. In addition to technical skills, how did the Artpreneur Program contribute to your personal growth and development?
It was not another art program where you have a stereotyped learning environment. It was more than art and design. In addition to the technical skills, I was able to learn the art of time tracking, meeting deadlines, setting goals, brainstorming ideas, making decisions, prioritizing tasks, and many more. You may easily accomplish the objectives you have in mind if you are fully devoted and have faith in the process.
6. What sparked your interest in branding?
The interest towards research, strategy and creating a visual identity to a company which can turn out to be a well known brand is something I cherish and loved to experience. Branding is an exciting and challenging area that allows me to combine my artistic and strategic thinking skills.
7. What are you doing now? Have you been able to generate income since completing the Artpreneur program?
I am currently working as a graphic and brand designer at Wings design studio, where I am responsible for brainstorming ideas, visualizing client requirements, creating brand identity designs, illustrations, social media marketing assets, pitch deck presentations, and video editing.
8. Where do you see yourself in next 5 years, we are really excited to hear from you.
My aim is to master branding and UX skills and stay updated with the emerging design trends in the market to accomplish 8–10 times the current annual salary. As an Artpreneur, I strive to do independent projects and establish a brand around my name.
9. How was your collaboration with your educator & mentor, during and after the program?
I'm indebted to Mr. Vivek, my educator for all his support and knowledge transfer transfer both during and after the program. I am also very appreciative of my mentor, Balaji Sir, whose foundation is the Artpreneur Program. He is an inspiration for me and my fellow artpreneurs. He has assisted me in sharing his wisdom at every stage, from providing feedback during the program to helping set up a personal brand. I express my sincere thanks to my guardian angels, Vivek brother, and Balaji sir, for all their guidance throughout the program and in future.
10. How likely are you to recommend the Artpreneur program to someone with no experience who aspires to become creative?
I definitely recommend this program to dedicated people. If someone aspires to become creative and is interested in pursuing a career in the arts, design, branding, or entrepreneurship, the Artpreneur program could be a valuable start. The program is designed in such a way that it transforms you into a complete creative person to succeed in the creative marketplace and can also earn you networking with fellow artpreneurs and lifetime support from the community. However, it is not another art program or educational opportunity; the value of the Artpreneur program will depend on your goals, interests, and level of commitment.
