- Ah, the Ozarks....Well, I grew up in back country Maryland - actually my town was considered "the City" to the folks from D.C. (Deep Country). lol.Well, I think you should do your own ad. If the owner doesn't ad then she's not a good business woman, to be honest. To heck with her. Advertise at the local schools. I'm sure that the school would be willing to photocopy flyers for whatever age group you're trying to attract. You'll probably get more than what you're looking for, to be honest. You can send flyers to the local churches, post on local community board - whereever folks congregate.

No, I am in the "ozarks" of NY up nearAlbany. About as back country as you can get, sigh......So, I would be willing to pay in Manhattan. I am just afraidthat, since it is a new class, that I will not get alot of studentsthe first go round. The owner does no advertising short ofa flyer that she sends to people already on her mailing list.I am thinking about doing my own little advert in a localpaper once the class time is decided. Maybe I could gether to give me a little discount on the rent as I willbe advertising her store as well.Thanks for the advice!S.

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.

Subject: [art_education] Questions about renting a studio space..
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
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!
