Artist Guide to Surviving the Pandemic: 5 things you can do which will keep you working

We all find the situation that we are in right now confusing and frustrating. It is hard to wake up each morning not knowing what tomorrow will bring. But as artists, we find solace in making things. Here are my 5 tips to keep focus and optimism in your life. 

This post was inspired by Crista Cloutier who gave a presentation Creating a Business Plan for Today and the Future for the Redwood Art Group who produces Art San Diego. 

1.  Concentrate on building relationships: don’t hide away, connect virtually.

2.  Think about what you can give to others. Your engagement will drive traffic back to you.

3.  Revise or update your website: this is your professional calling card and online sales are booming

4.  Create pop up shows  especially near restaurants with outside dining. Alcohol always lubricates sales.

5.  Barter your art. Each trade is like a recommendation. Notice who connects with your work and why.
