This is the time of year when you will start to see ads for original art for sale, fine art prints for sale and all types of handmade crafts for sale.
Every artist knows that this is the time of year when they can increase their art sales and ever selling artists wants a piece of the pie.

How can you have a record-breaking holiday season this year?
It starts with being organized.
If you get organized now you can focus on selling the artwork you already have on hand as well as any new art you are able to create over the next few months.
Organize Your Art Studio Tips
Why is it important to have an organized art studio?
One of the most important aspects of having an organized art studio is to be able to find what you want when you need it.
Have you ever wasted time looking for something you needed to complete a project?
How frustrating was that for you?
I have learned many years ago that I can easily reduce stress by having a designated place and area for all of my art and office supplies.
In the past, there were times when I was on a grove and I had to stop to grab something I needed to complete the project I was working on. When I couldn’t find what I was looking for I lost my focus and creative mindset.
After a few times of that happening I knew I had to make a change. I spent a full day organizing my studio so everything had a specific place.
This took some time to get used to but now I do not have to worry about spending an hour finding something I need to complete a project. I know exactly where everything is at all times.
Now I am on autopilot when I go to grab something in my studio.
Below are some helpful tips to help you get your art studio organized.
- Everything should have a specific place where it will be stored when not in use.
- Always put things back when you are done using it.
- Find creative ways to organize your supplies. For example, I use a bookshelf to hold my drawing and wood burning supplies. The bookshelf is in arms reach from my drafting table.
- If you draw have a place where you store unfinished drawings.
- If you paint have a dry and a wet area.
- Keep painting supplies near the wet area of the studio where you will be creating your artwork.
- Have your marketing supplies, shipping supplies and frames near your computer.
- Have plenty of storage both vertical and horizontal.
It will take some time to figure out what will work best for you and it will all depend on what you create and how big your room is.
Do not be afraid to change things around. Keep at it until you have the perfect studio.
Have More Artwork For Sale This Holiday
This is the time of year when you will have a better time to sell what you have in stock.
One way to increase your revenue this holiday season is by having a large amount of product for sale.
Do you have enough art on hand?
The more art you have posted for sale the more opportunities you will have for people to find you online.
Keep painting and drawing throughout the next few months and heavily promote all of your new artwork on your art blog, social media accounts and email list. Cross promote your other artwork that relates to the new creations.
Before you can start to create more art for the holidays you will have to get everything organized for the holiday rush and have an accurate inventory of what you have on hand.
- Art supplies – paint, brushes, canvas, drawing pencils, ink pens, cleaning supplies, etc.
- Packing supplies – boxes, wrapping paper, packing tape, bubble wrap, etc.

- Printer paper
- Pens and pencils
- Completed artwork
You will be ready to promote your art effectively after you have organized your art studio and took an inventory of what you have on hand.
