Pricing Your Artwork

artsaleThings to consider when pricing your artwork:

  • As a student your work will sell at a lower price than the work of a professional artist.
  • Your price should be equal to your insurance value.
  • How much did the materials cost?
  • How much time did you spend on the piece? Pay yourself about $10 per hour.
  • Is your work an original, a print, or digital? Multiples sell at a lower price.
  • How large is your work? Larger pieces generally sell for a higher price.
  • At what price would you regret no longer owning the piece?
  • Trading with fellow students is a great way to begin collecting.

    Ask your advisor for help or advice BEFORE deciding on pricing.
