ArtNomics: Know Your Numbers: Price, Profit, and Positioning
Pricing art is different from making art. This workshop will help creatives and artists understand the essentials of pricing their work.
ZEAL and Center for Cultural Innovation present "Know Your Numbers: Price, Profit & Positioning" with Jeremiah Olayinka Ojo, co-hosted by Center for Business and Management of the Arts @ Claremont Graduate University.
Led by art business consultant Jeremiah Olayinka Ojo, a professional with expertise in artist studio management, gallery and project management, and art market strategy, this workshop is designed to demystify common misnomers on pricing artwork. Jeremiah will explain the essential methodologies for pricing artwork (pricing), establishing & reinforcing value (positioning) and defining project work rates (profit). He will also provide an overview of art market pricing trends, artwork sales strategies, and inventory management with interactive role-playing to enhance workshop concepts.
The workshop is appropriate for individual artists working in any genre and at any point in their careers. We especially encourage Black artists and creatives to attend.
This workshop is made possible with support from Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture and the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs.
Scholarship inquiries should be directed to Tia Oso: Tia@ZEALLA.net. We will not turn anyone away due to lack of funds.
