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.
