Selling Art With No Fear

NEW WORKS FROM THE STUDIO OF ART BY WENDY

Low Tide - 7.5 x 10 - Watercolour, matted $230

Seems like a strange topic for Artists but a very real feeling for many artists!  It is the nature of the beast.  Visual Artists like to work hours on end in their studios creating their masterpieces; pouring their heart and soul into every piece. Then suddenly they are out there!!  To sell, artists need to move out of their lovely quiet studios into the busy world of Marketing.  For many this is very difficult; an artists must sell not only their artwork but themselves as well.  A hard role to play when your heart and soul is sitting there for all to judge!

On Tuesday, Sept 17,  I will be making this presentation to an art group.  With some discussions, games and role playing activities, we will all be building skills to market ourselves and our work with confidence.   I am looking forward to working with this group as I know we will  have some fun and I will learn some new things too!!
