The fine art industry, as most people understand it, is built around a small group of people who have managed to control the messaging around how art is sold.
If you went to art school or you know folks in the industry, then you were probably told that the only way to make a living as an artist is to hand your work over to a gallery owner and hope for the best.
But that’s not the only way to make a living from your art.
The Image7art Blog exists to teach artists like you about all of the other ways that you can make a living from your art.
Via blog posts, and courses, we teach artists:
the starving artist is a myth created by our culture and is not true if you don’t want it to be true
how to make a living from your talent as an artist by selling your art directly to collectors, whether that is selling original work, prints, commissions, or licensed products
Self-study courses for art business. If you’re just getting started in your online business journey, check out some of our self-study courses that cover beginner topics on the Artist Courses Page.
An incredible community of professional artists who help and support each other by sharing experiences and ideas. We have an online community as well as meetups happening all over.
Our mission is to teach talented artists to sell their art.
It is possible to make the art you want, live the creative life you want to lead, and make good money doing it. There is no reason artists need to take a vow of poverty in order to create their art – it is possible to be an artist who makes regular, consistent sales by using the Web to sell directly to your fans.
I ask you to take advantage of our free content library, many artists have enrolled in courses here.
We’ve helped dozens of artists just like you quit their day jobs and make art their full-time career. You can read their testimonials and case studies on this website.
If you would like to make art your main gig, start by creating a free account to check out what we have to offer, or jump straight into The Image7Art Blog if you’re focused and ready for everything we have to offer.
We look forward to helping you grow your art business.
