The Business of Art Licensing: Create - Licen$e - Repeat

Saturday, January 22, 2022

Have  you ever wondered how the constant flow of the latest fashion apparel,  greeting card designs, housewares, handbags, kitchenware, calendars,  planners, coffee mugs and the many thousands of other consumer products  look the way they do? If you have ever looked at a mug or bedsheet or gift bag and thought “MY art would look great on that!” then this class  is for you.

This  class will help you begin to see consumer products in a whole new way.  You will hear about the art licensing industry and the layers of  consultants, art directors and product developers who collaborate with artists to put their artwork on consumer products. You will hear how you  can get your artwork in front of this type of buyer. 

Discussions will include valuable tips and information for submitting your designs  for licensing consideration, the things that ‘always’ sell, and what  royalties and contracts look like. There will be time for Q&A with Willie throughout the class. 

Licensing work isn’t for every artist, but for many it can be an excellent income  source that does not dilute the original work you create. 

This class explores:

  • what licensing your art means
  • how you would go about getting your artwork or illustrations licensed
  • how to introduce yourself and your art to potential companies
  • the pros and cons of art licensing
  • what are usual royalty rates and contract lengths
  • resources and strategies for entering the art licensing industry
