Keep hustlin’!

Artists: how much do you charge for a painting? How much for a print? How much for this watercolor masterpiece of a manatee (pictured above)? It can be a tricky question, but today’s workshop “The Price is Right,” hosted by the artist group Gowanus Swim Society, will teach you how to choose a price point, make a budget, and apply for grants.

4 pm at the Old Stone House [336 Third St. between Fourth and Fifth avenues in Park Slope, (718) 768–3195, www.theoldstonehouse.org]. Free.
