Costing & Pricing

Whether submitting a commission proposal, working to a project budget or selling your work, it is essential to know how to calculate costs and to have confidence that your pricing will be sufficient to cover expenses and generate income for future research and development during the quiet times.

For our next workshop with Visual Artists Ireland (VAI), Patricia Clyne-Kelly will present basic financial accounting and a simplified structure that will assist artists with money matters. She will also cover developing a day rate for your work as an artist, building in on-going overheads into your costings for projects and activities such workshops, commissions and exhibition fees, as well as pricing individual works of art.

There will be hands-on exercises that Patricia may ask you to do, so please come prepared with pen and paper.  The session is complimentary to other VAI workshops such as Creative Proposals and Public Art Proposals.
