with Jeremiah Olayinka Ojo
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. Scholarship inquiries should be directed to Tia Oso, Tia@ZEALLA.net.
Come early to grab a bite and mingle with your fellow artists and creatives! Doors open at 6pm.
