Making Your Art

Accepted Young Artists are solely responsible for creating 10-25 pieces of art work to sell at the Young Makers Market on September 7, 2024.
TWAC does not provide supplies, funds, or instruction on the making of this work.

We encourage Young Artists to consider the size and scale of each of your pieces, how you will display that work, and how you may need to wrap it for a purchasing customer.

Selling Your Work

All accepted Young Makers are responsible for selling and collecting payment for their own work in accordance with State sales tax laws and national income tax laws. Young Makers may price their own work.

On the application you will need to indicate how you plan to accept payment:
  • Cash Only
  • Venmo/Paypal/Zelle/Square (parent or guardian account or 18& older)
  • The Woodlands Arts Council Payment Processor**

**The Woodlands Arts Council Payment Processor is a Payment Operating System hosted through Woodforest Bank. Young Artists who choose this option will collect payments with the device. Once the event has completed TWAC will run the report for total sales and subtract the credit card processing fees from the total. A check will then be mailed to the Young Artist.

The Workshops

Young Artists will participate in a day of workshops to prepare before the Market.

The workshops will cover topics including marketing & leadership, and will feature talks from working artists.
Additionally, Young Makers will have the opportunity to ask questions about the Market, learn about event set up & clean up, and pick up their event credentials.
