What you'll learn:
- Market, sell, and ship your art.
- I designed this course for my students when I was teaching at a community college in Fremont. It's really for art but I think the main concepts are transferable to any other field. About me. I'm 53 and a realist painter who is making a reasonable living representing myself on line and not working with galleries any more. I have been making around 30 to 40 k a year.
This courseis designed to help those interested in the business and economic activities associated with fine artists, art agents, and gallerists.
A practical and collaborative seminar for people who make art, work in galleries,and individuals who are interested in helping or becoming a fine art professional.
Subjects and follow up projects will include, identifying and applying to exhibitions spaces, best practices for working with galleries and museums, marketing strategies (marketing on the internet using social media platforms.)
Aspects of the "business" end of being working in fine art, (record keeping, money management, and the mechanics of shipping fine art and setting up a shop on the internet.)
