In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity ~Albert Einstein
As in-person events are being canceled daily, artists are turning to virtual solutions–virtual exhibitions, selling their work online (adding or expanding existing online shops), virtual conferences and summits, using video to create collaborative and interactive community-based projects, and teaching art online.
As you pivot your art business to adapt to these changes, you may be overwhelmed by where to start and unsure what the essential items are that you need to get started. Having taught for years in-person and online, I know that getting started can be daunting.
The good news is that it has never been easier to get started teaching online. And many of the resources you need to get started are free or inexpensive.
