Kick Start Art with Stephanie Law

Crowdfunding is a powerful tool to get your art in the world, fund your projects BEFORE you invest, and boost your income. But what makes the difference between a mediocre Kickstarter project and a successful project? Excellent planning. In this course, Stephanie Law will share the exact plan and templates she used for a highly successful six-figure Kickstarter campaign.

Kick Start Art’s Facebook group has been an amazing supplement to the course where we can share our experiences, encourage each other, and keep a finger on the pulse new research and project developments as they happen. Best of all, we get to learn, share, and grow together long after the course is over!”

“At this point I just sign up for the classes, knowing I’ll always get quality and they’ll exceed my expectations. They cover not just the practical aspects, but also the mindset and philosophy. It’s very authentic and growth-oriented, which is so fundamental to being a creative.”

Stephanie Law


Growing up in California, Stephanie has been surrounded by the wealth of natural inspiration all around her. The twisting boughs of live oaks from the hills near her home insinuate themselves into her paintings. The chaos of Nature’s wild growth, and conversely the beauty of decay, echo in the textures and fractal patterns of her work.

She began her illustration career working with many fantasy gaming companies. Early on, she did pieces for Wizards of the Coast in Magic: the Gathering and Forgotten Realms, as well as with Skotos Tech (Castle Marrach), White Wolf (Changeling), Alderac Entertainment (Legend of Five Rings), and Green Ronin (Blue Rose). She also worked with publishing companies LUNA Books,Tachyon Books and Palazzo Editions.

“Stephanie Law is incredibly generous, giving us her MANY instantly-usable crowdfunding tools, and her wisdom in the private Facebook group. I know I gained a lot from taking her course last year and now have the confidence to make a molehill out of that Kickstarter mountain!”

Q: Does this course work?

We’ve had many direct successes by students since we added this Intensive, including Iris Compiet’s Fairies of the Faultlines Kickstarter (backed at 740%!).

Q: When does the course start?
Unfortunately you’ve missed the live sessions of this Intensive. Fortunately you can download it anytime and watch the recorded sessions at your leisure. You will get all course materials and videos immediately upon purchase.

Q: How long will I have to see the material? Is there a time limit?
You have forever access. The whole point of this project is to get artists the knowledge they need. We’re not going to take it away!

Q: Hm, I really wanted to be a part of the live Q+A sessions.
Well, you have access to the Stephanie, Lauren and Marc, AND all the participants in the FB group.

You also have access to the Q+A videos, yours to watch anytime.

And if/when we offer a live version again, everyone who has ever signed up for the course will be welcome to join the live sessions.

Q: Can you work at your own pace?
Absolutely. If you need a little encouragement we recommend getting a small group inside the FB group to get through the material together.

Q: I’m a struggling artist, paying for classes feels like a lot for me to afford. 
We get it, and it’s the “struggling artist” that we make our courses for!  The truth is that any amount of money will make it hard for some people to join. 

That’s why we give every student a way to offset the cost with a personal affiliate link. For every person that signs up, you get money back. And we don’t cap it. So not only can you get your course for free, you can actually make money on top.

If you have a question that wasn’t answered here, ask us by emailing and we’ll answer (and probably add it to this FAQ)
