    Survive & Thrive has taken me from viewing my art as a hobby to a professional art business, and I learnt a whole lot of technology along the way, which I never thought possible. What a fantastic Journey… I now have a website thanks to Ashley’s Course!

    Ashley’s mentoring & coaching has helped fast-track my Art Business in more ways than I could have hoped. I highly recommend this course to all artists who are looking to take their business to the next level.

    Nicole Frankiewicz - Three Hearts Art Studio

    I have thoroughly enjoyed completing the Survive & Thrive Course with Ashley. I have gone from someone who called herself a part-time painter to a person who proudly calls herself an Artist. I am no longer procrastinating and waiting for something to happen. Thanks to Ashley’s mentoring I now have very clear goals, a well mapped out plan, a vision, confidence and passion to sell my art.

    What this course does not cover:

    • It is not a life coaching or counselling program. Mentoring is focused on supporting, facilitating and encouraging the participants to implement the training whilst answering questions relevant to the course content and the participants goals.
    • It is not an in-depth training course in how to use any particular software programs, although relevant elements of particular programs may be taught in their day to day application. For in-depth training in such programs, it is recommended that the participants consult the vendor of such software or other training schools that specialise in detailed software courses.
    • This is not, and we do not promote, any kind of 'get-rich quick' scheme.


    • AHA Academy cannot guarantee any results or earnings from the program as it is dependent on the ability of the participant, how much work they out in, the quality of their artwork, their experience, changes in the market and how much of the training and mentoring the participant is prepared to take on and implement.
    • The mentoring is largely self-directed and as such, progress is driven by the participants efforts and willingness to try new things and take coaching. The potential earnings of the participant is solely up to the individual, though AHA Academy will provide every effort to support and provide help for participants success.
