Don’t Be Afraid of the Internet

This workshop is designed for artists, crafters and others who would like to design and/or manage their own web sites, or revamp an existing one, but aren’t quite sure how to get started and feel overwhelmed by all the options out there. In this era of wide internet access and social media, it is vital for artists to have a web presence. A good web site does not have to be complicated or hard to maintain, but it is an essential tool for an artist who wishes to be taken seriously by prospective gallery directors, potential buyers and art collectors, and those who write about art. Whether you’re looking to sell your art online, get into a gallery, or provide a place for someone who stumbles across your work to find out more about you, this workshop will help you to hone in on what is important to you and how best to go about achieving your website goals. It is specifically designed with a week between the two classes so that participants can start to work on their sites and get help with issues, opinions on layout, etc. during the second class.
