Monday – Even if you’re a brand new artist just starting out, there’s no reason to sell your art for pennies. OK, there MIGHT be one reason. On Monday I’ll let you know what that could be, as well as give a few resources and guidelines you can use to give you an idea of how to price your work.
Tuesday – With all the online art sites and individual portfolios I keep finding, there’s too many great artists for me to review them all.

Wednesday – Artists tend to love variety, originality, and beauty; but we often find ourselves living in a world of mass production, statistics, and profit/loss margins.

Friday – This week’s tutorial will show you how to write a great artist statement and resume.
