The Artist Who Tells the Best Story Wins: Talking About Your Art

Saturday, May 26th

10-2pm


Your art doesn’t speak for itself – you do. 

Learning to talk about your work to anyone, anytime, anywhere pays big dividends.  
 
The purpose of a persuasive conversation is to engage in conversation with people about their art tastes and leave them with good reasons to look closely at your work, s tell others about it and/or buy it.  
 
Bring along a printed copy of your artist statement, your resume and a piece of art. You’ll practice presenting yourself, your accomplishments and your art so that you have easier, more enjoyable and effective conversations with potential buyers. 

​Instructor: Aletta de Wal: equal parts artist, author educator & entrepreneur.

The Goldilocks Strategy for Pricing Your Art:

Create Your Own Pricing Formula

Saturday, June 23rd

10-Noon


Are you worried that your prices are “too high” or “too low”? “Guessing”, “Rules of Thumb” and “By-the-Inch” pricing are haphazard. Get your prices “just right” or you will be marketing like a character in a fairy tale. Price is more than a number.  
 
Pricing is a marketing strategy. Gallery dealers and experienced collectors see enough art to have a built-in sense of an appropriate price. Credible prices for quality art will attract buyers and representatives.  
 
Learn the mistakes to avoid; how to calculate your costs; how to set your prices; when to raise your prices; how to include gallery commissions; and how to handle requests for discounts. You will leave with a 10-factor formula that will give you the confidence to stand behind your prices and know what to include in a pricing policy.
