In my years of showing &
selling my art, I have discovered that correct prices are essential.
If your prices are too
low, you will
1. work hard
2. make a lot of art
3. sell a lot
4. bring in a lot of money
5. have no profit for yourself
6. lessen the perceived VALUE of your art
7. lower your own prestige
Artists who sell too
cheaply are actually paying people to take their art.
Do your prices allow you to profit from your talent and work?
This class will teach you exactly how to determine your perfect prices,
based on YOUR SPECIFIC COSTS and the VALUE OF YOUR TIME.
Youll learn how to find the right
price for your art so you will cover all expenses, including your time.
Because if you arent paid for your
time, youll need a JOB to get the money to pay your bills.
Youll learn how to decide what
gallery to approach
& what to do if you dont get in.
Youll learn other ways to show & sell your art.
Youll learn how find potential
collectors of your art
& how to keep in contact with them and with your collectors.
I will not tell you that all
of this is easy or simple.
But if you know what to do and you do any part of it,
you will be far ahead of where you are now.
You will have a real advantage over artists who do not know what to do.
Im the only working
artist who is sharing information about selling & pricing art.
Knowledge is power, but it is elusive and hard to
gain, so take advantage of mine.

A recent class participant, who already had a web site and
wanted to learn how to get more visitors to it, emailed me the next day:
"Ann, I just want to thank you for your
As an instructor of over 10 years, I am especially grateful
for the special time you dedicated to me and my specifics.
In Italy we say: 'Sei
una fonte inesauribile.'
Literally it means 'you are an endless well' of information.
Knowledge is power.
Are you ready to get the knowledge you need?
Knowledge + Inspiration + Action = Success
the Knowledge you need and take inspired action to achieve your success!
Are you looking for the best ways to
show and sell your art?
Do you want to reap the benefits
from the years of classes and work you have invested in your art?
Would you like to increase your level
Would you like to learn how to promote
yourself--to make others aware of you and your art--using the power of the internet AND
the power of free publicity?
In this class I share with you the knowledge I acquired
during my years of experience.
Are you confused about what to do and how to do it, to make
selling your art an income-producing business?
Don't be stopped by lack of knowledge.
SMALL improvements can make a BIG DIFFERENCE.
Learn first-hand what works and what doesn't work.
Instead of spending time searching for information, and
evaluating the credibility of each information source, you can spend 3 hours of your time
in this class and get the information from someone who has figured out what works by
actually doing it.
You will learn the steps to take.
Taking just one step can bring you far more income than the small price of the class.
Then YOU DECIDE which steps (or
actions) you want to take first. Choose the ones that feel comfortable to you. Some
of them are so easy that you could already be doing them, if you knew what they were.
Each step you take helps you feel more
confident and increases your success.
This class provides valuable
information for artists at all levels.
Learn the essential steps to increasing your visibility and your credibility.
Take action at your own pace.
Refer back to the class information whenever you are ready to take another step.
Everything is clear and easy to understand. Nothing is left to memory

Sheila attended my December class.She went home and took action. As a result, she has
built an awesome web site.
Sheila, thank you for sharing. I know you
will inspire other artists by sharing your process of working through the overwhelm. When
a task feels huge, we each tend to think it is beyond our abilities. But by breaking it
down and taking one step at a time, we can complete any task...just like eating that
"When I took Ann's Business of Art class last December, I felt so intimidated!After all, I'm an artist, not a business woman.And there was so much information!I must admit, I left feeling a little overwhelmed.
BUT I decided to begin like you do when you eat an
elephant--one bite at a time!I began readingthrough the notebook (a BIG help) and doing little
things, like getting a URL address.
Each time I took a step and succeeded, my confidence rose.
The key is to just START.
Within a month, I had a web site up and running, business
cards and postcards in hand, and now, a photo blog---all because Ann told me I could, and
gave me good tools to work with!If I can do
it, anyone can do it!"
Joy purchased the Workbook & CDs.

Joy found the originl information so helpful she came to my studio to

Thanks to you, I'm convinced I can just do an inexpensive, simple web site---just to show
Now I know I can and should start with a place to
lead people just so they can see my work! And the advice to use my name & .com is
Thank you so much for sharing this down-to-earth
information, for sharing your mistakes, & for not sounding high & mighty perfect!!
It gives us hope! I've just pretty-well skimmed everything, but I will study & re-read
as time permits."
Ron Stokes attended "How to Get your Artist Web Site"
"I have just finished my first reading of your workbook
and I just wanted you to know that the emotional result is like one being filled with high
octane fuel. The information is so useful and your coaching segments near the end really
inspire one to work harder to achieve one's art-art career goals.
Your workbook strategy works; the information combined with the
very useful websites makes your workbook a complete beginners' instrument that one can
take and use to complete one's first website.
Again, thank you for the class and your careful and
