    I think if you ve never done it, $25 a class is not so bad. Remember you are advertising yourself as an artist, so even if you don t make a lot, publicity is

      Ah, to live in Manhattan. No, I am in the "ozarks" of NY up near
      Albany. About as back country as you can get, sigh......

      So, I would be willing to pay in Manhattan. I am just afraid
      that, since it is a new class, that I will not get alot of students
      the first go round. The owner does no advertising short of
      a flyer that she sends to people already on her mailing list.

      I am thinking about doing my own little advert in a local
      paper once the class time is decided. Maybe I could get
      her to give me a little discount on the rent as I will
      be advertising her store as well.

      Thanks for the advice!

      S. Gordon

      Well, I don't know where you are located, in Manhattan space is at a premium, so it seems a fair price.... The thing is that you would need to make sure that you keep your enrollment high. You may want to increase the max to 12 or 15 to ensure that.

      Hello All,



      I have found a local Craft Store that

      is willing to let me teach Drawing classes

      in their space.



      We had a meeting yesterday to hammer

      out the financial stuff and she is asking

      for $25.00/class rent.



      The session is 6 weeks and I am planning

      on charging $89.00 per student plus supplies.

      Works out to be $150.00 total rent.

      The class minimum would be 5 students (max 10).



      I would love to hear some experienced

      advice about this.



      I personally think it is too high, but

      not sure what to base that on, except

      that it is seriously cutting into my

      profits.

      That turns out to be less than

      $10.00/student/class income for the minimum.

      I never expect to get the max, especially

      during the first run of the class.



      Any advice would be great!



      Thanks,



      Shelly G.
