I've created a series of lectures to share everything that I know about making a living from art
How and What
The course consists of 6 fundamental topics – style, marketing, social media, galleries, business side and life. By learning that you will find answers to the most disturbing questions about an art career.
What You will Get

Brief on point lectures
We are grownups. It can be hard to find a lot of time to watch long videos. I kept the lectures short and full of useful information that you can apply straightaway.
I'm always happy to answer your questions.
You will not be alone
The course will have it's own chat where we will be discussing lectures.
There will surprises during the course that I haven't announced yet.

Successful artist = popular Instagram? Is it true?
A dream of any artist is to collaborate with a gallery. Drink champagne and talk to people about art at the opening of the own solo show.
Working with galleries is easy once you know what you need to do and what to expect. I hope my recommendations will become a bridge between your art and the long-awaited exhibition in your favorite gallery.

Art as a business
Let's start from the fact that you are not only an artist, but you have every right to call yourself a businessman. Any commercialization or monetization of art already makes you an entrepreneur. You need to get used to this idea and love it.
In order for your business to be successful, for you to grow and develop, and paintings to be sold, it is important and necessary to be able to solve administrative issues. And when everything becomes stable you'll be able to hire an assistant!
