VAI Workshop | Business Skills for Artists with Marian McDonald – Kildare (18 Sept.)

Does creating art flow easily for you but when it comes to getting your work out there and selling it you grind to a halt?

Why not adapt and apply skills from other sectors to make the time you spend on the business side of things efficient and productive. This workshop focuses on effective Business Skills tailored to Visual Artists.

Marian will teach you the business skills to succeed as a self-employed artist. Costing and pricing strategies will be considered as well as budgeting skills. Tax Compliance will be examined with the possible acquisition of Artists Exemption Status. Assess your artwork in relation to competitors, the market and future planning in a relaxed but informative format.
