Teaching isn't all we do.
We provide hands-on help so you can get where you want to go, faster and with less stress. Whether it's a web site, a master database of your work, or design of marketing materials, we're here to help you get started. Or, we can take care of it for you if you'd rather be spending your time creating your art.

Learn to Edit-it-Yourself, cost-effective web sites: We will work closely with you to create a custom web site that you can easily learn to edit yourself, because artists are different than most small businesses. We know that you'll be wanting to change your images, add information about upcoming events and shows, and mark work as "sold" as your art career takes off. Here are a few we've created:

"I nicknamed Robin The Wiz because of her keen ability to find the best, least cost solution for any problem related to business and marketing. She does not shrink from any web marketing challenge and comes up with innovative ways to capture opportunities quickly. Far more than a pair of hands, Robin is a great mentor for individuals and true strategic partner for any web entrepreneur."

"I recently had the opportunity to work with Robin Sagara, who is the tech magician from Artist Career Training. I found her informative, knowledgeable, and insightful. She added links and buttons that would have taken me months if I tried to do it myself. Not to mention the look and feel of the nice a crisp site. Besides making my site look very clean, organized, and bright, Robin was very nice to work with. She let me do as much as the work as I could in order to save money. I basically did as much of the repetitive work as I could such as preparing the photos, posting photo info, putting her completed code in for the cart buttons. This saved me lots of money and saved time for Robin to work on her programming and integration of social media. Another asset in using Robin is that she is a wonderful graphic artist too. She came up with the design and background for my website. Robin was always available for questions and we also sent many emails back and forth. Thank you Robin for a wonderful job!" Susan Cafarelli

"I am sooooooo pleased. I'm very, very happy with the site, Robin. Thanks so much - what wondrous work you do!" ~Bonnie Samuel
Bonnie had an FASO website she liked, but wanted it to look unique and fresh. We developed a brand for Bonnie, gave her website a facelift, created business cards, created a custom banner to use at events/shows, and customized graphics for her to use on Facebook, Etsy, and Google+.
"Robin is an artist with computers and a doll to work with. She took advice and opinions from three strong and creative people, tamed them all, and like magic, out came an absolutely beautiful web site 'brand.' Even more important than her skill and creativity, she has a knack for intuitive understanding of what we want before we even know it. Hooray for Robin! She is the best." ~ Connie Bransilver, Business Manager, Nicholas Petrucci, Artist, LLC and Guardians of the Everglades

Nicholas Petrucci's portraits exemplify beauty, grace, dignity and the control of light. Rembrandt, Caravaggio and Davíd have inspired Nicholas, and like them he always seeks out the beauty within each subject. We are proud to work in collaboration with Nicholas, and his wife Connie Bransilver, an internationally known nature photographer, artist, author and speaker.
In addition to the website, their Guardians of the Everglades website, we support Nicholas & Connie with ongoing email newsletter design and production.
