Non-profit organizations offer an unparalleled opportunity for visual artists:
  • they are ubiquitous
  • they need art
  • they are a realistic way and safe way for an artist to enter the marketplace of multi purposing art and working in usage rights
  • they offer an artist huge opportunities to advance a career
 
Explore the options available, including the range of organizations and their needs for art. Learn the down and up sides of working with nonprofits plus pricing, negotiating, and entering into barters only for value. Discuss model releases and how to arrive at fees for commissioned work and for the re-use of your art in a range of products.

This demo combines the many separate focus business demos Ray offers from 20 tips to cards to exhibiting to merchandising, with a focus on a potential client and partner for all.
