The life of an artist can be a STRUGGLE for sure. You want nothing more than to create all day, but money is inconsistent and you have bills to pay.
In the first years of my business, I was teaching individual and small group lessons upon request. A local roller derby team asked me to do a ‘painting party’ for them, and it sounded like fun!
They wanted to paint Georgia O’Keefe’s “Red Canna”. We set a date, they supplied the food & drinks, I supplied the supplies and off we went!
Word of mouth took hold, and soon I was making an extra $1,000 to $2,500 per month (on top of my Etsy shop) conducting in-home painting parties 1-4 nights a week.
Cash money, baby. Now I’m going to teach you how.
- How to research your market and find your audience (and then get them to your parties!)
- Startup costs and how to calculate your prices (how to keep your costs LOW and your margins high!)
- How to create marketing materials for your business and parties (including my first flyer and the free tool that I use to make all my graphics!)
- Everything you need to do before, during and after the party to ensure a successful event and happy customers that will return again and again
- How to grow and expand your creative business on your own terms
