All the knowledge we need for our art careers is right here in our own artist community. Someone knows how to make a simple website. Someone knows how to use Instagram. Someone knows how to price and sell their art. Someone knows how to create an art event. And on and on. If you have something you want to learn, please come! If you have something you'd like to share, please come!
You don’t have to think of yourself as an “expert.” You don’t need any experience teaching or giving workshops. All you need is your own knowledge and a willingness to share with other artists in a comfortable conversation-based environment.
Our plan for this event is to have several small discussions going on at the same time, led by one or more artists who feel confident about the topic. We may break up the time into two sessions so that artists who are "experts" in one session can attend as "beginners" in another session. We hope to cover approximately 4-8 topics.

This event is FREE, but seating is limited. Please RSVP at Eventbrite.
Is it hard for you to sell your art?
Do you think that being a good sales person requires you to be pushy or manipulative?
Are you confused about what to do or say when someone walks into your studio to look at your work?
Do you frequently wonder how the art sales process works and how to do it right?
If you answered YES to any of these questions then this workshop is for you!
Many artists find the selling difficult and daunting and most do not take the time to learn how to sell. It’s easier to stick to the belief that the art will sell itself or resign to the idea that that you simply do not have the personality to be a good sales person.
If more artists took the time to learn about selling, they would sell more art, be more successful with their art businesses and actually enjoy selling and getting to know buyers and collectors.
In this 2-hour workshop you will learn:
The top 5 limiting beliefs that most artists have about the sales process that keep them from making more sales or selling their art all together.
A new paradigm for looking at selling that feels more authentic, engaging, and fun
The 8 stages of selling art (from meeting buyers to closing the sale) giving you a clear framework on how to handle the sales process
How to speak about your art in a way that is more interesting and engaging so that people are more likely to buy
Tips and ideas on how to cultivate collectors
Please join us for our first Art Bias event of 2019. Planned as a fun and informative gathering of local artists, you will have the opportunity to meet representatives from several mid-peninsula art organizations, hear about their programs and available resources, and connect with other artists like yourself, all under one roof.
If you are a member of a local art organization, we would like to invite a representative from your organization to participate in this gathering. Each organization will have a few minutes to give a brief overview of their offerings, then there will be tables set up for you to display any printed materials you would like to bring. This will be a great opportunity to introduce yourself to local artists, promote your programming, and even network with other arts organizations. You may bring as many folks as you like.
