The Cherokee Nation is very proud of the many talented artists that abound in our people. We believe in developing those talents along with business and marketing support to create a viable business through their art. The artist loan program provides funding for supplies, show and/or booth fees, travel expenses and equipment. Our staff works with the artists to create an individual plan.
In addition to the loan program, we offer workshops specifically geared to the artists and their professional development. These workshops cover basic business planning, marketing, the artist’s calendar, pricing and displaying artwork.
