Be a Money-Making Artist (Not A Starving Artist)

Sell Your Art In Online Galleries

​Selling your art through online galleries can work for all kinds of creators. If you are a traditional artist you can use the online gallery as a platform to sell actual products (prints, postcards, paintings…) Many online galleries also have print-on-demand programs where your artworks can be reproduced and sold to collectors worldwide. You can find several print-on-demand companies online and through some of them, one can also sell physical artworks. Online galleries can also bring potential clients. Someone looking for an artist can see your works online and like your artistic style and hire you to make a commissioned painting for them.

Print-On-Demand Programs

​Print-on-demand programs have grown more and more popular within recent years. There are both pros and cons in them. Usually, commissions that artist gets from each product sold through p-o-d pages are very small but if you have a great variety of products and you take some time to advertise your galleries they can help you earn a great deal of passive income.

Write About Art

​Do you enjoy writing and taking photos? If you have a monetized blog or another platform you can get some decent passive income for creating art tutorials and doing what you love. Video tutorials are also very popular at the moment but money-wise they only tend to work for those with millions of subscribers.
