This is the best class I've seen on the subject of Art Licensing. Cat dispenses a clear sense of direction and the most important things to know and consider as one takes this journey. Well done! –Cory
Cat is a fabulous role model plus her direct and positive attitude throughout her social media and in her Skillshare courses is especially validating and valuable. I definitely would recommend this course to anyone interested in licensing and selling their art, photography and designs. The social media and networking information plus lists of POD sites and image specs were a big bonus. –Debra
