I am on a mission to help artists take their power back from the scarcity and permission-based art establishment.
My vision is to help over 10,000 artists thrive in less than ten years. It’s time for artists to take back their power.

Would you like to sell your art, without feeling like a sellout?
Maybe you’re not even sure where to start because you don’t have a plan?
Maybe you feel a lack of self-confidence or a lack of focus?
Maybe you feel conflicted about the idea of making art and making money from it?
I get it. I might be a lot like you. My name is Ann Rea, and when I went to art school, I accumulated a lot of student loan debt and when I graduated, I needed to make money; I didn’t have time to make art. I abandoned making art for well over a decade, working an unfulfilling job so that I could pay off my debt.
Fast forward, I was stressed and unhappy, and I started to make art again, just to help with my anxiety. Making art again helped me realize that life is too short, and I wanted to at least try to figure out a way to make art that I felt proud of and to make a living from it. After all, I had earned a fine art degree, so I had to give it a shot.
So in 2005, I moved to San Francisco and outlined an actionable plan to sell my art and I sold over $103,246 in my first year as a full time artist, without representation. I started to receive some national press attention, and artists started coming to me, asking for my help. At the time, I was way too busy and I wasn’t sure how to help these artists.
A few years later I found out that my intern was going to graduate from the San Francisco Academy of Art with over $200,000 of student loan and credit card debt and no clue how she was going to repay it. Sadly, her father had just lost his job, and her mother passed away. I realized then that I had to do something to help her and other artists in the same situation.
I want artists to know that they have a choice. You can submit to the authority of the scarcity and permission-based art establishment and forever be conflicted about making art and making money, or you can join The New Creative Class and learn how to sell your art, without feeling like a sell-out.
Join us Monday, October 28, at 7:00 – 8:30 pm for an exclusive workshop that I will be hosting in San Francisco where you will learn what they do not teach you in art school.
Grab your ticket; seating is limited.
You’ll leave with three practical and powerful strategies that can immediately help you sell more art.
- How to start to triple your focus and self-confidence.
- How to gain referral art sales which can produce over 80% more sales, on average, where you keep 100% of your money.
- How to skillfully handle requests for discounts and donations in the name of “exposure.”
Who is this for? This class is for artists who want to determine their market niche and sell their art.
Who is this not for? This is not for artists who are seeking representation.
