Although there are exceptions, and additional methods of payment, there are two major ways for artists to receive payments. These are: Performance and Commission.

Performance is, basically, what is says on the tin. In the case of musicians, it is literally someone pays for a ticket to see a singers "art", in this case, his/her music. In terms of art, it an either be to look around an art gallery, or to buy a piece of art for their own home. In all cases, the customer is paying for the access of an artist's art.

Commission is where an artist, or musician gets paid by a client in order to produce a particular piece of art, which is specified by the artist. This is a big part of most artist's paychecks, as commissions are always in demand, and many artists have survived solely off being employed by large companies for a one-off piece of art, say for an advertisement, and getting paid large amounts for it.

How much money does a artist make?

Most artists do not get paid salary and weekly pay like most other people do in jobs. Artists usually get paid depending on how good their work is and how many people actaully buy what they have created. Some artists though can get paid a salary, it is usually done more in contract form though. If a business wants to create a new sign, or new sculpture for the outside of their business, then a artists will be hired and will be paid for creating the artwork. Like I said before though, it all depends on the talent of the artist, and the demand for what he/she is making.
