Gaining the skills you need to run a successful business takes time. To some extent you can learn specific marketing strategies and tips on how to operate your business, but in many cases, the real knowledge comes from trial and error.

Trial and error is often the best way to learn how to become a successful artist, as well as how to make art. The more you paint, the better you will get at it. The more times you set up an exhibition, the easier it will be next time. The more people you talk to about your business, the more helpful advice you will receive.

You might not learn everything about your art in college, but you can get a solid foundation of practical knowledge that will help you throughout your career as an artist.

Get Involved with Other Artists: By spending time with other artists and working on your art alongside peers, it will inspire you and help build a sense of community. This inspiration will make it easier for you to work on your own art while also helping others.

Art Colleges Offer More Than Just Classes: Art colleges offer a variety of resources that can give you a great start in running your business. You can learn about legal matters like copyrighting your work, or even getting insurance for yourself or your studio

This is exciting!

I’ve been working on this blog for a few months now with the aim of sharing my experiences, knowledge and advice to new artists, art students and art entrepreneurs. I’m very happy to see it has started gaining some traction.

I’ll be posting about art colleges, tips for self promotion, how to get noticed online, how to start your own business as an artist, how to make money from your art and everything else that comes up along the way.

But if you have any suggestions or requests please feel free to reach out and let me know. If there’s anything you want to know about just ask me in the comments below or email me at: contact@warli-art-painting.com

Being a professional artist is great, you have the opportunity to create art and share it with the world. The bad thing is that you are on your own. 

You will have to deal with all the aspects of running a business: accounting, taxes, marketing and so forth. The good thing is that there are many ways to help you.

But before you start thinking about all those things, let’s clarify what’s your definition of “professional”. In this article I will assume that you want to be a profitable artist or a profitable artist-businessman. Why? Because for me being a professional means that one earns money from his activity. Perhaps not lots of money, but at least he earns something from what he creates.

To achieve this goal there are two ways: being self-employed or working in an organization (like a studio). Both ways have their advantages and disadvantages.

Being self-employed usually means more freedom but also means that you will be responsible for all the business issues: accounting, taxes, marketing etc… Being employed in an organization means that you will probably have less freedom but on the other hand someone else will take care of your accounting and other stuff.**^

While I have been painting for well over a decade, it wasn’t until the last year or so that I became passionate about it. It was then that I decided to make some changes in my life.

I stopped working a traditional job and started my own art business. This was not an easy decision to make, but the fulfillment of a lifelong dream! I now spend most of my days creating art, and teaching others how they can do the same. The rest of my time is taken up with blogging, social media management and other business related tasks.

So what is this blog all about? Well, I have decided to share my knowledge and experiences with anyone who is looking to get into the art business or even thinking about starting their own art related business.

Just like in any other industry there are many people who are trying to get ahead by any means necessary. There are also many people who will try to convince you that they have the “secret” on how you can be successful in this business as well.

But here’s the thing…there is no real secret to being successful in any industry—you just need to put in the hard work!

In order for me to help you achieve your goals, we need to get something straight from the beginning

“People will pay you to do this? Really?” That’s what I was asked when I told some friends I was going to be a professional artist. “How much do you get paid?”

There are so many answers to this question, it’s hard to answer it in a way that gives people a good idea of what I do for a living. It’s like asking someone how much they make in a week. It depends on so many factors, such as if they work full-time or part-time, or freelance or are self-employed.

Telling someone how much you get paid for your art is about as useful as telling them what you got paid for the last thing you did – it doesn’t tell the whole story.

But the real question here is: How can you get paid to make art?
