Description

Whether you’re looking to get rid of that old painting that’s been hanging around in your attic, or you are an artist looking to sell your work, this is the course for you.

This is a clear, concise and comprehensive series of modules that will take you through the Sherlock Technique – my step-by-step process to valuing your art. My style is casual and clear.  I don’t believe in using a lot of complex language as I want the joy of buying and selling art to be accessible to all.

You don’t even need to leave the house to complete the course. All the course materials can be downloaded for you to print out and you will need to have your painting in front of you to inspect it as you move through the modules. I recommend you give yourself a morning/afternoon to complete the whole course if you are doing it all in one go.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is meant for beginners who are not familiar with the valuation of artworks and/or students who are looking to improve their knowledge of paintings and the affordable art market. It is not for those looking to put a value on a Picasso or a Rubens!
