If you have ever thought about becoming a licensed artist and want to understand how to create art that is sought out by the retail market that sells, this class is for you. Licensing art is a great way for artists to earn income as a working full time profession. It takes time and skill to understand what product developers are looking for when seeking art to represent their brand in a wide range of retail markets. I specialize in home décor, so my art is designed for walls and other decorative items, however, what you will learn in this class will give you the skill to design and create art for any industry such as textiles, earthenware, accessories, packaging, décor and much more.
Even if you are not a professional artist and you have taken my “How to Paint Like a Published Artist” course this is a great way to expand on the skills I taught and have fun learning how to create collections. Who knows, maybe licensing your art is an opportunity you have been waiting for?
This course is focused on insight and techniques on how to create your own brief when one is not given. How to pull a color palette from images and how to select the right color paint. We will dissect the process and get a little more creative with the color palette, where to get inspiring imagery, and how to apply it to your own unique Collection using a variety of techniques. We will dive into trend research and how to get inspired to create marketable content for your collections. You will create a "Birds & Buds" collection with all over pattern, isolated images, and complete compositions making it versatile for many products within the licensing industry. You will gain the knowledge and techniques I teach within your own art and get you started in creating successful collections of your art.
Class projects will include a total of 7 paintings within the collections using various techniques and compositions. All over print, isolated images, and full composition paintings that can be used for many products such as fabrics, accents, paintings, and earthenware to name a few.
