PRIMITIVE ART, RURAL SOUTHERN AMERICAN FOLK ART, Caribbean Art,
The premier Naive Painter was HENRI ROUSSEAU
He was called "Le Douanier" as he was a customs agent
by profession and painted on weekends.
There are untutored, rural people all over America who can paint that well. There are
galleries everywhere that handle them. The favored subject, simple little cute homes,
and People in rural landscapes
RURAL LANDSCAPES, SELF TAUGHT ARTISTS
Go to Google Images, put in words like rural landscape, folk art, galleries,
You will find EBAY sites where the artists ask and earn hundreds per canvas. You'll find little, local galleries with a web presence. With just that EBAY or ETSY webpage, or their own website, GO-DADDY is 3$ a month...they can sell to EUROPEAN collectors and galleries and earn EUROS.
LITTLE HOMEY GALLERIES DO BETTER THAN YOU IMAGINE.
The people who start superb online galleries did nothing more than put out a search for painters in some small, Southern towns where there are no jobs available. SHOW a rural housewife how to paint on wood, canvas, masonite and her very primitiveness, her naive hand, is put to use making money for the family.
OUTSIDER ART ( BASQUIAT INSPIRED ) and or school room art.
MAKE your CHILD A STAR OVERNIGHT
SELL IT AT ETSY. LEARN HOW TO MERCHANDISE "STUFF"
Takes 3$ a month to get yourself a website. Domain name is free.
ANYONE can teach themselves website design in ten minutes.
CHILDREN do it.
GOOGLE UP A LIST + FOLK ART GALLERIES + MUSEUMS, NAIVE ART galleries.
If you do, you'll find a lot of exemplary GRAPHICS, JPGS of gorgeous folk art even the prices it brings.
HAPPY LITTLE FARM ART
Grandma Moses started at age 80,
she made a fortune in her 'lifetime.'
Her grandkids made 1000 times that amt selling her stuff.
LAST, HAITIAN PRIMITIVE ART. This is the most beautiful of all and in this case, as HAITI needs money, I suggest getting the real thing from tent cities and sending profits back to Port Au Prince. See: HAITIAN ART PAGE for more on that idea.
To see more examples, perhaps to print out, show to your students, to gallery owners, to investors in a charity 'art development business' that you want to do, google on IMAGE page, for search terms "folk art" + American primitive + outsider art, + rural landscapes + self taught, and 'Haitian art.' You will dig up enough graphics and information to get your family members started on painting PRIMITIVE ART, or buying it abroad and wholesaling it. After a few weeks of your teens elbow deep in paint, you just take digital photos of the art, create a website and start selling it. All my websites were made without a stitch of knowledge of how to do it. My "WEB SITE MAKING FOR DUMMIES" PAGE will show you what to download, like FTP free software. The current SOFTWARE I use (WEB MONKEY) it's an htm composer. That's about it, actually. OH if you have an older PC, before WIN 7, get a vintage browser called NETSCAPE vers 4.5 or 4.7 one of those two as it has NETSCAPE COMPOSER in it the software I used (BEFORE WIN8. I can no longer use it I have to use webmonkey now.) Did 10,000 articles on NETSCAPE COMPOSER, all of which teach living cheap & GUERILLA CAPITALISM --see PORTAL to all my webpages.
IF YOU MAKE AN ACTUAL BRICK AND MORTAR (meaning a building..) GALLERY, YOU CAN ALSO RENT IT OUT FOR WEDDINGS, PARTIES and SINGLES introductions parties AS DID THIS GALLERY: http://www.galleryc.net/rental.html
