Art Fairs 101: Should you do an art fair

An Artists Handbook to a Successful Art Fair

Want to Get in on the Art Fair Boom?

Not sure if you're ready to do an art fair? Worried about the risks involved in doing an art fair?

I hear you...that was me too. But after having done about 20 art fairs over the past several years as an independent artist, I've learned tons about the ins and outs of the business of the art fair. I'm an a full time artist with a marketing and business background. I know the mindset of making art is completely different from the mindset of selling it.

In this coarse we'll blend the two worlds and help you decide if an art fair is for you?

This is an all inclusive guide to the dos and don'ts of the art fair world!

Here's what's included in this course:

How do you know if you're ready to do a fair?

Is your portfolio ready?

How much will it cost and can you afford it?

How do you know which fair is right for you?

How do you know which show is right for you?

How can you tell if the show is legitimate?
