Whether you are a knitter, potter, painter, sculptor, mixed media artist, etc., your craft can be profitable! We discussed ways of selling your art (ceramics, jewelry, photos, paintings or drawings) locally and online by way of the Boulder County Farmer’s Market, local galleries such as the KCP Gallery on 364 Main Street, commissions and trades for work locally, and online at Etsy.com

UPCOMING EVENT SCHEDULE:

-Tie-Dyeing Art Club Fundraiser Event – Date TBD. We will be taking over the community room and courtyard to tie-dye shirts, socks, hats, and other items! Students have the opportunity to pay for materials and learn how to make their own creations with us, all to support a great cause- US!

-In preparation for the 2D Art Show, Art club will have two CRAFTING DAYS on April 4th and April 10th to create 2D fundraising pieces for students to buy and win! There will be an AWESOME raffle with prizes, as well as 2D pieces for sale!

  • There will be easels and boards available to showcase your pieces. Artists are welcome to place their items on sale (only if they would like). If you are feeling especially charitable, pieces can be donated to the Art Club to sell.
  • Open to all students and faculty, this is a wonderful opportunity to get your art out in the community, discuss your pieces with other artists, and make money on them!
