How To Start And Grow Your YouTube Art Channel

It’s no secret that YouTube is the future of entertainment. But, are you looking for a way to contribute to the future of YouTube? Are you an artist who wants to share their work or create tutorials for art-related skills? If so, then a YouTube art channel may be perfect for you.


How To Start An Art Channel:

First, let’s talk about the kind of things you should include in your art channel. YouTube art channels should feature your work! Whether you’re a professional  artist who creates art or someone who is teaching people how to make art, your channel needs to display your video work.

If you’re an artist, then your channel needs to feature your art – whether it be showcasing videos of the art you make, videos that highlight your style, or tutorials that show people how to create and draw from your point of view.


Here’s How You Can Grow Your Youtube Art Channel:

1. Find Your Audience:

The first step to creating your YouTube art channel is to identify the type of people you want to watch your videos. This means that you need to know who you’re creating for.

If you’re an artist, then all of these people will be looking at your work and, in turn, they will be a part of your audience. You’ll have an idea of what this audience looks like if you’ve already had experience with art sales or creating art in front of an audience.


2. Find Your Niche:

The next step to starting your art channel is to find your niche. Your niche is where all of your videos will be geared towards. This means that, at least for the first few videos you make, you will be talking about this one particular topic for ex. drawing, painting, craft making. This can include everything from tutorials on how to start doing art, to how to draw different people and the like.

Once you have found the subject matter for all of your art (niche) related videos, then you can begin creating a list of all the different types of people who will be interested in this niche (audience) and also all of their interests.


3. Create a Plan:

Now that you know who your audience is and what they want, you can create a plan to make it all work. Your plan needs to include how often you will release your videos, how long each video will be, and also what kind of links you will put in the description area of your video.

By creating this plan, you’ll be able to stick with it – rather than abandoning your channel because you’re not meeting goals or have no idea when you should begin making videos again.

You can always use a professional video editor to add a YouTube end screen template. It will make your videos stand out and help you gain more attention.


4. Create a Schedule:

Now that you know who you’re speaking to and what you’re creating for, it’s time to create a schedule.

By creating a schedule, you’ll be able to plan out exactly when and how often you will make new videos. A recommended starting point is one video per week. This schedule isn’t set in stone, though, so if it turns out that you have way more time than this or not enough time at all, then feel free to change your schedule.


5. Begin Making Videos:

Now the fun begins!

If you’re already an artist, then you already have most of the information you need to begin creating videos. This can include creating a title, description, and thumbnail for your videos as well as deciding how many of your favorite pieces of art will be featured in each video.

If you’re not an artist, then this part can be difficult – especially if you’re planning on making art tutorials. It’s recommended that you do a few test recordings with friends or family so that you can see what works and what doesn’t work while recording in front of others.

You can also easily add a YouTube end screen template to your videos for a professional look. 


6. Capture Your Audience’s Attention:

To grow your channel you need to capture your audience’s attention. This means that you need to put a lot of thought into how each of your videos will be presented.

You can increase the number of views you receive by making sure that your videos are unique, fun, and very well organized or informative. Use SEO or other techniques to get your videos out there to the audience that you want to watch.


7. Sell More Art:

The next step is to sell more art. This means promoting your videos through Youtube,Twitter, Facebook, and other social media sites as well as making sure that you’re getting the word out through email lists and forums.

You need to be able to take advantage of the tools that you have at your disposal. That can include advertising through Google and other platforms as well as getting your videos shared through social media and forums. 

You should promote each uploaded video as much as you can on every social media site and with every blog or podcast that will allow you to link back to your channel.

Since YouTube has such a wide demographic range, you must go beyond just using YouTube for promotion and get creative with the advertising of your art channel. You can also promote yourself by having a good website and blog, being active in social media, offering freebies to your audience and so much more.


8. Learn from your competitors:

To grow your channel you need to learn from your competitors. This means that you will be watching as many other art channels as you can to see what works and what doesn’t.

While it’s impossible to learn from all of the channels in this way, by watching others closely you can pick up some great tips on how to make your videos more interesting and how to improve your channel’s structure for success.

There’s a lot of work that will go into creating and maintaining an art channel, but it will be worth it. The more views your art channel receives, the more exposure you’ll get as an artist – especially if you’re making tutorials or series on how to draw or create art.

By starting an art channel, you’ll also be opening yourself up to receiving feedback from all of your viewers which can help increase the quality of your work while teaching people what they want in their artwork.
