IF THAT'S NOT YOUR REALITY JUST YET, LET ME KNOW IF THIS SOUNDS FAMILIAR:​

  • YOU SEE ARTISTS WITH REGULAR INCOME AND WONDER HOW THEY DO IT

  • YOU'VE BEEN ASKED FOR BESPOKE ARTWORK BUT DON'T KNOW HOW TO NAVIGATE THE DETAILS

  • YOU ARE STRESSED OUT THAT YOUR CLIENT WON'T LIKE THE FINAL ARTWORK, AND IT FEELS LIKE A LOT OF PRESSURE

  • YOU ARE WORRIED CLIENTS WON'T PAY FOR THE ARTWORK AFTER ALL THE HOURS YOU HAVE PUT IN

  • THE IDEA OF WORKING TO A CLIENT'S DEADLINE STRESSES YOU OUT

DON'T WORRY, WE'VE GOT YOU COVERED.

WHETHER YOU'RE AN ESTABLISHED ARTIST OR NEW TO THE SCENE, YOU CAN ADD COMMISSIONED ARTWORK TO YOUR OFFERING, CREATE A NEW REVENUE STREAM, AND IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE ALL-CONSUMING OR KEEP YOU AWAY FROM YOUR OWN PRACTICE.

THIS IS PRECISELY WHY GITA JOSHI AND MONA LERCH CREATED THIS PROGRAM CALLED GETTING STARTED WITH COMMISSIONS.

SO ARE YOU READY TO ADD THAT NEW REVENUE TO YOUR ART BUSINESS?

THIS IS THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE COURSE FOR GETTING CLARITY AROUND YOUR OFFER AND AN ANXIETY-FREE COLLABORATION WITH YOUR CLIENTS.

GETTING STARTED WITH COMMISSIONS IS THE ONLY COURSE OF ITS KIND THAT TAKES YOU FROM CREATING YOUR COMMISSION OFFER AND PROMOTIONAL MATERIAL TO BOOKING CLIENTS, DRAFTING CONTRACTS AND DELIVERING YOUR ART TO ECSTATIC COLLECTORS.

BEFORE WE SHOW YOU WHAT'S INSIDE THIS TRANSFORMATIONAL COURSE, LET'S TALK ABOUT WHO THIS IS FOR:

YOU ARE A CREATIVE WHO LOVES SEEING YOUR WORK IN CLIENTS' HOMES, OFFICES AND BUSINESSES, WHO IS READY TO LET THE CLIENTS COME TO YOU, HAVING ALREADY DECIDED YOU'RE THE OBVIOUS (AND BEST) CHOICE.

THIS PROGRAM IS SUITABLE FOR VISUAL ARTISTS WORKING ACROSS ANY MEDIUM OR GENRE.

SPOILER ALERT - YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE A PORTRAIT OR PET PORTRAIT PAINTER TO MAKE A BANK FROM BESPOKE ARTWORK!

WHETHER YOU ARE A VISUAL ARTIST WHO:

  • IS NOT CLEAR ABOUT YOUR COMMISSION OFFER YET

  • WANTS TO ADD ANOTHER INCOME STREAM TO YOUR PORTFOLIO

  • WANTS TO MAKE SURE YOUR CLIENTS UNDERSTAND YOUR PROCESS, TERMS AND COMMITMENT WHEN BOOKING A COMMISSION

  • WANTS TO OFFER BESPOKE ART BUT DOESN'T KNOW WHERE TO START OR HOW TO CONVEY THE OFFER TO BRING IN THE RIGHT CLIENTS (YOU'VE TRIED WRITING 'DM FOR COMMISSIONS' ON YOUR INSTA PROFILE AND JUST GOT SOME THUMBS-UP EMOJIS AND NO ACTUAL ENQUIRIES)
