Inside Edition 6 of our free artist resource, MentorMe, we discuss social media, the time for money ratio on selling artworks, and the challenges of making a living off your art.
MentorMe is a free resource for artists who wish to learn from their peers.
Beautiful Bizarre Magazine is passionate about supporting artists and the industry. Through research and consultation, we seek to develop new ways to encourage, mentor and inspire emerging artists as they explore their creativity, develop their technical skills and find their personal style. We asked 9 established artists to be our mentors in order to encourage, guide and inspire emerging artists as they explore their creativity, develop their technical skills and find their personal style.
MentorEdition 6 Mentors:
Ryan Heshka, Kate Bergin, DULK, Kristen Liu-Wong, Victor Grasso, Adrienne Stein, Chris Guest, Rose Freymuth-Frazier, and Crystal Morey.
The 3 questions we asked our mentors to respond to are:
- Has the rise of social media and the internet affected your practice and sales for better or worse?
- Does the amount of time you spend on an artwork reflect in its price? Is there a good time for money ratio?
- What are some of the greatest challenges you’ve encountered trying to make a living from your art?
