Business & Financial Resources


Thriving as an artist may mean establishing your own nonprofit organization or being self-employed, negotiating deals, insuring your pieces, and handling complex financial matters. Entrepreneurs and those interested in selling their creative works will need to educate themselves—and seek expert guidance about their own situations—on a broad range of issues before setting prices and collecting income. Get started with these general resources but remember that strategic marketing is critical to your success. Make sure your marketing plan is in place, and get your online media up-to-date.
