Lecture

W2018-WLw2 Pricing Your Artwork
Instructor: Jeff Schaller
Experience Level: All Levels
$ 35.00 - $ 30.00 Members
Friday 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM ( Mar 16, 2018 - Mar 16, 2018 )
The most popular question and complex riddle of an artists career is, “How do I price my artwork?” Everyone has difficulty with where to start pricing our priceless creations. I too filled my years of schooling with art classes instead of business classes. It took me more than 20 years of hard knocks to grasp the basics of economics 101. This lecture will examine how to price your work with basic formulas as well as the simple economics of price and demand. This will help you raise your prices intelligently and systematically. We will discuss the reality of what we create along with it’s worth and the hype and myths that surround being a successful artist.  
Not getting enough on your ROI? That's okay; I had no idea what that meant until I started paying for frames…and I need a Return On my Investment. Once I established my own profit margin, I had the confidence and knowledge to approach the galleries with an understanding of business. What I had to offer was more than art, it was a mutual respect for business. 
If you're making great art, now is the time for a better business.

Basic Watercolor Supplies for Beginners

  1. a container for water, a large plastic yogurt or cool whip type container
  2. watercolor paper- a pad of Strathmore water color paper is good to start with.
  3. watercolor paints, you can start with an inexpensive set of water color tube paints or a

box of childrens water color sets to start, just replace the brush. The tube sets often have

some colors which are difficult colors that I do not suggest but if you are just starting

4. A palette for mixing. A white plastic dinner plate works great. Bring a large plastic bag

to Cover it to transport the paint home.

5. Water color brushes. Do not buy a packet of brushes, they are usually terrible and will

frustrate you ! Buy a good round, pointed water color brush , it should be about $12.00 , with a

coupon you  can get it half price. A size 8 is good to start. It should say for watercolor! Do not

use acrylic or oil brushes, there is a huge difference.

6. Bring a board to tape your paper on with blue painters tape.
7. A pencil and a kneaded eraser.
8. If you are experienced, and have upscale supplies, bring what you have.
9. The first day I will show you my supplies and options to upscale later,

Should you decide to.

You can shop at AC Moore or Michaels and get coupons for 50% off an item and go a few

times. Also Kennett Copies and More on Cypress Street sells art supplies, also Holly Hobby and Jerrys in Wilmington.

Basic Watercolor Supplies for Beginners

  1. a container for water, a large plastic yogurt or cool whip type container
  2. watercolor paper- a pad of Strathmore water color paper is good to start with.
  3. watercolor paints, you can start with an inexpensive set of water color tube paints or a

box of childrens water color sets to start, just replace the brush. The tube sets often have

some colors which are difficult colors that I do not suggest but if you are just starting

4. A palette for mixing. A white plastic dinner plate works great. Bring a large plastic bag

to Cover it to transport the paint home.

5. Water color brushes. Do not buy a packet of brushes, they are usually terrible and will

frustrate you ! Buy a good round, pointed water color brush , it should be about $12.00 , with a

coupon you  can get it half price. A size 8 is good to start. It should say for watercolor! Do not

use acrylic or oil brushes, there is a huge difference.

6. Bring a board to tape your paper on with blue painters tape.
7. A pencil and a kneaded eraser.
8. If you are experienced, and have upscale supplies, bring what you have.
9. The first day I will show you my supplies and options to upscale later,

Should you decide to.

You can shop at AC Moore or Michaels and get coupons for 50% off an item and go a few

times. Also Kennett Copies and More on Cypress Street sells art supplies, also Holly Hobby and Jerrys in Wilmington.
