How to Make Money as a Student

Have you ever thought about selling art?

If you search ‘how to make money as a student’, the top results will probably consist of dodgy-looking money-making surveys or ads to become a brand ambassador for companies you would rather not spend your weekend handing out flyers for. But what if there was a way to get some extra cash without doing any extra work? Or even make a bit of money by simply picking up a new hobby?

Here’s where selling art could be your next part-time job. Whether you’re an art student or not, BRUSHWRK is here to show you how to start turning your unique creations into cash.

If you’re an art student

You might think those extra works hiding at the back of your bedroom are not good enough to sell, but they could be exactly what someone else is looking for. Especially as supporting local, upcoming artists is becoming more popular and people are looking for unique pieces to fill up their space.

Putting your work onto an art marketplace like BRUSHWRK is also a great way to increase your online presence and start connecting with potential clients and buyers. At BRUSHWRK, we’re always looking for new artists on the app to spotlight on our blog and include in our upcoming exhibitions, so creating your profile is a great place to start putting your work out into the world.

If you’re not an art student

As much as being a student is about focusing on your studies, it is also important to take time out to relax and have fun. They say it’s never too late to start a new hobby, especially not one that could make you a bit of extra cash too. Why not start by picking up supplies from your local art shop or maybe look for some local drawing classes to get you started. Before you know it, you’ll have pieces you can start selling!

Art has also been proven to be good for your mental health, and with more students starting to understand the importance of wellbeing, turning to art as a form of mindfulness could be a great way to begin a new hobby that is not only good for your bank but also for your brain.
Once you have your art to sell, BRUSHWRK will do the work for you. As a dedicated art marketplace and community, BRUSHWRK’s powerful machine learning-powered recommendation engine helps to put your work in front of people who will love it, which means more sales for artists.
