Workshop - Make a Living Selling Your Artwork Online

My newest venture is a collaboration with my husband Patrick on a workshop for other artists and craftspeople: Make a Living Selling Your Artwork Online.  This workshop provides instruction on the tools, venues and strategies we have used successfully for the past six years to sell artwork on the internet to patrons all over the world. I have a successful track record selling my own work online--over 2,000 original paintings sold to date--to almost every US state and every continent except Antarctica and Africa.

In our experience, there is a huge demand for artists and craftspeople to find online venues in which to display and sell their work. However, many artists lack the tools, experience and knowledge required to take advantage of a worldwide market.

 Our workshop covers the following topics in four 2-hour sessions:

Session 1, morning (check back for new dates--coming soon!)

  • Defining your goals
  • Defining your market
  • Deciding what to sell
  • Research best practices
  • Q & A

Session 2, afternoon (check back for new dates--coming soon!)

  • Do you really need a web site to sell your work? NO!
  • Identifying the best online venues for your work
  • Maximizing exposure
  • Marketing your work online
  • Q & A

Session 3, morning (July 26 - 11:30-1:30)

  • Managing costs
  • Selling originals and print reproductions
  • Inexpensive hosting and template options
  • Photographing your work
  • Q & A

Session 4, afternoon (July 26 - 2:00-4:00)

  • Shipping
  • Getting paid
  • Accounting
  • Scam awareness and prevention
  • Recap
  • Q & A

Additionally, participants will have access to a list of online venues where artists can list their work for sale or view, including costs involved, best sites for different types of work, answers to frequently asked questions, and other important information that all online art sellers need to know. 

We conduct our workshop using a lecture format and include a segment of each class for questions and answers. Our workshop utilizes a combination of PowerPoint presentations, as well as examples from the internet.
