My Skillshare Debut / Creating Art that Sells: A Working Artist’s Guide


My first class is officially live! I teamed up with Society6 & Skillshare to create a course dedicated to teaching artists + designers tips to boosting their passive income through selling artwork.

After months of prep work, shooting in NYC, and working through final edits from across the world, I'm so thrilled with how everything came together. My course is FREE & open to anyone who wants to learn!

From the Society6 blog: "This Top-Selling Artist Teaches You How To Make That Travel Money on Society6"

"If you've ever been on Society6 and thought to yourself, "I could make money doing that," now's your chance to give it a shot! We teamed up with our friends at Skillshare to bring you this free class taught by one of Society6's top-selling artists, Cat Coquillette. Once an S6 fan, Cat now travels the world on passive income largely generated through her Society6 shop. In fact, she's in Thailand (probably painting) as we speak. All you need to do is create a free Skillshare profile and get to it.

Skillshare is a rad online learning community where anyone can explore classes on the things they're interested in. Check out the class today and you'll also receive a free 3-month Skillshare trial (click blue banner at top of Skillshare's class page) to watch a bunch of other design-related classes to get you closer to making money through S6."

I want to extent a HUGE thank you to the Skillshare and Society6 team for helping put together such a killer course! Simply put, this wouldn't have been possible with their shared expertise. Society6 approached me in the fall of 2016 to see if I was interested in putting together a class with them and I jumped on the chance for a collaboration. Thank you, S6 team for this opportunity! Skillshare has an incredibly talented team of producers, project managers, editors and videographers. They were all a treat to work with!
