Is your art your passion? Do you have a creative side hustle you wish would be your full-time gig? Are you looking for a way out from your day job?

Want to know how to price your work so you actually make money?

If you cringe when you hear terms like “cost of doing business” and “cash flow” and “bookkeeping,” you are a completely normal creative entrepreneur.

Pricing for the creative entrepreneur

We’re artists. We’re emotionally invested in our work. But creating a quote and pricing our work shouldn’t be an emotional task—it’s a scientific, mathematical exercise in accounting. And it’s not hard.

Your course instructors know first-hand how intimidating setting and sticking to prices can be

They have both worked through this process for their own businesses and know how tough setting prices for your art can be. In order to help other creative entrepreneurs set appropriate prices, they developed this course in order to make objective pricing decisions based on your unique craft and individual goals.

What our students are saying

“One thing I really appreciate about this course is that it makes me think ahead to the future. One day I might want to rent space, do some travelling, account for taxes, and I don’t think I would have thought to account for all of these things right out of the gate. I definitely appreciate that insight. ” —Cassy

“The class on pricing artwork, and all the various aspects that add to the cost of doing business particularly stood out to me, because I hadn’t thought of everything. I was pretty much just winging it. Still am really, but I feel more prepared than I did.” —Jolynn
