This interactive workshop use worksheets to illustrate the standard pricing model that all businesses use to pay expenses and make a profit. Speaker, Jeffrey Howard will introduce some of the factors that artists use to arrive at a fair price for their work and teach students to apply some empirical methodology to emotional decisions. Participants get to move around looking at art and guessing the prices. It’s a fun game that drives home the lesson and engages the active learner.
