When I was a kid, I didn’t know what to do with my time. After school, there were no extracurricular activities or clubs for me to join; all the other kids were busy with sports or clubs and after-school jobs. So I decided to make something instead: art!
In today’s world where kids aren’t given enough time to play outside, being an artist can be incredibly healing and healthy for your emotional well-being and self-esteem. Plus, if you’re not already making money from your art then why not start now? You could sell printable cards online or even create animated GIFs from images on Instagram; these are just two examples of ways that 13 year olds can earn some extra cash by selling their work online (alongside other tips below).
“Why should I give you money?”
When you’re selling your work, it’s important to be confident and present yourself well. You should be able to explain why your art is unique, good quality and worth paying for.
If a buyer doesn’t understand what they are buying or can’t tell if they like it then they won’t buy it! If something like that occurs, then there is no point in continuing with selling – as soon as someone says “no” then we will move onto our next idea which is probably better anyway!
Art stalls at craft markets and farmers’ markets
If you want to make money as a 13 year old artist, art markets and farmers’ markets are great places to start. Art markets are cheap to rent, but if you’re looking for something more permanent, market stalls is available for six-month rentals at a time (and sometimes even longer). The meaning of this is that if you want to continue making your art until high school graduation or beyond, this could be an option for you.
If your goal is simply making enough money from selling art in order to pay for lessons or supplies and materials—or just enough so that it doesn’t interfere with other aspects of life—it might not be necessary (or even possible) for kids under 14 years old who are just starting out on their artistic journey.”
Even at the age of 13, you can earn money as a 13 year old artist by selling your art online. This is one of the simplest and easy methods to get your work out there, and it’s also one of the most lucrative.
Online galleries are great because they allow you to sell products such as prints and other merchandise that you create yourself, without having to rely on other people making sales for you. You’ll have complete control over everything of how your product sells itself—from pricing it at exactly what someone will pay (and how much they’ll spend) down to how many copies they order per month or quarter. It’s really up to YOU!
This means that when anyone buys something from an online gallery like ours here at [website name], we know exactly where those funds went: straight into your pocket!
Etsy is an online marketplace for handmade and vintage goods. It’s also a fantastic and great place to sell your work if you’re interested in starting out on this path.
Etsy has a wide range of categories, so there’s something for everyone. You can find jewelry, ceramics, prints and other artworks created by people just like you (or better—you know who they are). The best part? It’s all handmade!
If you’ve been thinking about selling your own creations but aren’t sure how to get started yet, Etsy makes it easy: first create an account by clicking here! Then upload photos or images of your work into the proper category until someone buys it from within their own browser window at home while watching Netflix on his laptop during dinner with friends who haven’t seen each other since college graduation night two years ago but still want everyone involved in those reunions because social media makes us feel connected even when we’re not physically together
Greeting cards and stationery
Greeting cards and stationery are a great way to make money as a 13 year old artist. You can sell greeting cards at craft markets, farmers’ markets and online. You can also sell greeting cards on Etsy.
T-shirts and clothing
T-shirts are a great way to make money as a 13 year old artist because they can be sold at high prices, especially when you’re selling them on Etsy or Amazon. You will need to design the t-shirt yourself, but once you’ve done that it’s just about finding the right companies that will be willing to buy your designs from you.
Some examples of these companies include: Zazzle (for printing), Threadless (for customizing), Redbubble & Society6 (designs only) and Canva (customizable templates).

A global online market delivering tasks is called Fiverr. Starting at $5. You can post gigs, or accept gigs from other users. If you have a skill that others are willing to pay for, then it’s possible to make money on Fiverr.
