Whether submitting a commission proposal, working to a project budget or selling your work, it is essential to know how to calculate costs and to have confidence that the price you ask will be sufficient to cover expenses and generate an income and funds for future research and developments during the quiet times.
This workshop will look at basic financial accounting and is simplified into a structure that will assist artists with money matters. It looks at developing a day rate for your work as an artist, building in ongoing overheads into your costings for projects of all kinds whether: workshops; commissions and exhibition fees or pricing individual works of art.
