For nearly ten years we have been the paint party pros! Painting on canvas continues to be a growing trend. During the Holidays, however, it is CRAFT season as you all may know! We teach our Artsy team how to creatively make money by using wood cutouts.
Even if you don't own an artsy business, you can easily gather these supplies to do workshops making any of these three projects. Make beautiful decorations for your home or give them as gifts!
We recommend learning just one or two of these designs so that you don't invest in too much inventory. You can also use these designs to create non-holiday projects, which means you can book workshops all year long!
How do you make money doing project workshops?
We price our events in the $35-$45/pp range. We recommend hosting groups of 10 or more based on your community standards (during COVID!). If you can find a restaurant or public venue with enough room, we have had groups of 50+!
You can sell tickets for your events using EventBrite, Square, Paypal, or Venmo. Our project workshops profit an average of $300+ for 10 person workshops. You'll want to look at each project and gauge the cost, your time, then price your tickets accordingly.
Pandemic Party? You can also create to-go kits and host a virtual or recorded tutorial!
Here at Artsy, we are the paint party alliance! We have hundreds of art ambassadors just like you who do this part-time or full-time! We combine resources to help you grow your business. You are in business for yourself, but not by yourself!
