The Art Establishment's 3 BIG Fat Lies

Lie #1 - Just Focus On Making Art

The art establishment tells artists that we should just focus on making art and they will take care of all of the business mumbo jumbo. But they don't and they won't.

Lie #2 - Your Art Should Sell Itself

Get real. Nothing sells itself. But if you believe this, then you'll approach your art like a hobby, and you won't compete with the art establishment.

Lie #3 - Artists are Discovered

You wouldn't be reading this if you believed that a fairy princess was trying to find you so that she could sell your art.

My intern graduated with over $2000,000 of debt to finance her Bachelors of Fine Art. Even though she paid over $3000 for a "career course," she had no idea how to make a living as an artist.

For 30% less than she paid for one course, I created a comprehensive program of eight courses based on my proven and practical experience selling my art.

My students don't graduate until they earn their tuition back, at a minimum, through the sale of their art during their final project.

Why did I fire my art representatives? They wouldn't allow me to sell my art or even list my prices on my website. They only consigned my art and didn't sell much. They wouldn't allow me to work with other art galleries without their permission. I was paid less than 50% on each sale, and they discounted my prices. They damaged my art and frames. Most importantly, they prevented me from contacting collectors so that I could ask for referrals, which typically produce about 85% of all new sales. I lost so many sales and opportunities because of these common onerous terms.
