For many artists, pricing your artwork can be a real stumbling block – but it needn’t be! Art & People want to help you understand your worth and figure out how to price your work confidently and consistently.  

In the peer crit, Claudia will kick things off by sharing some fundamental pointers to help artists critically interrogate your current pricing frameworks, encouraging you to consider what it costs you? What stage are you at? What is the selling environment? And other important reflection points. 

We will then open up the individual peer crits, where each artist will get around 12- 15 minutes to present your work and get personalised feedback from Claudia, as well as advice from wider group discussions with the other artists participating. 

Attendees are encouraged to bring along 3 examples of their work to the peer crit that they can speak to, either physically or digitally. 

Session overview: 

  • Opportunity for 8 artists to present your practice, join the conversation and receive personalised feedback 
  • Introduction to the guest speaker’s professional practice 
  • Exploratory activities to allow artists to critically examine their current pricing frameworks and what works and what doesn’t 
  • Opportunity to network and meet other artists with similar experiences, who are working and practicing today 

What you will gain: 

  • Curatorial feedback on your individual artwork prices and general pricing methodology 
  • An actionable plan on how to go forward pricing your artwork 
  • An insight into how other artists practicing today are approaching this topic 
  • A new network of artists and creative professionals

More about Art & People and Claudia Kennaugh 

Art & People is a Bristol-based art advisory service offering guidance to artists and collectors. Prior to launching in 2019, founder Claudia Kennaugh worked in the arts for 15 years. First as a songwriter and performing artist and then art advisor and gallery partner. Over her years co-running the Hollywood Road Gallery, London – established by her family in 1980 – she curated countless fairs and exhibitions with hand-sourced artworks from the UK, Europe & South America. During this time, she nurtured the careers of many artists. Her dual experience of life on both sides of the business motivated her to create a service that helps the people who create art, just as much as those who collect it. 

Today, Art & People supports the professional development of early-mid career artists with one-to-one coaching, online tutorials and workshops. By partnering with organisations such as Bow Arts Trust, Spike Island, Visual Artists Ireland and Wimbledon Art Studios, Claudia helps to foster thriving artist communities with her practical group sessions. Claudia’s curating work continues both in exhibitions and in people’s homes, where she helps collectors to buy, frame and hang art that they love. Her keen curatorial eye is eagerly sought after and in 2022 she was on the judging panel of Jackson’s Painting Prize. By guiding artists and collectors simultaneously, Claudia creates new connections and opportunities, bringing it all full circle.
