How To Commission Art [December 2019]

Last Updated on

It all depends on scheduling and what you are commissioning. Usually one to three months is a safe guess.

Usually when someone commissions art work, the usual way the arrangement works is fifty percent up front and fifty percent upon completion of the piece. That way if they abandon the project, you are not completely out the time and effort you invested.

A custom commission is a work that is contracted by a buyer and it is something that is special to the buyer and not always something that you may do. Also outline it in the contract exactly the terms and conditions and the time and prices that you will need him to know.

What does it mean to commission a piece of art?

It means you hire someone to paint or create a piece of their art that is made just for the customer. You usually pay half of the commission fee up front, and the rest when the art is completed.
