A website is critical to your success as a business (and yes, artist, you are a business). In this class we will learn the ins and outs of website basics including domain names, hosting, platforms, mobile friendly etc. The class will mostly focus on Wordpress which is the most popular (and flexible) website format available today. This is a very basic class which will start you at the beginning of building your online presence, but it is also good for those with established websites that are being maintained by a third party as it will give you the knowledge you need should you need to move from one website designer to another. Those who do their own Wordpress site will also have an opportunity to ask questions pertaining to their own website development challenges.
As part of our ArtWorks professional development programming, the ArtHouse offers a monthly co-operative meeting for artists, with a focus on web skills, social media and marketing for artists. In 2016 we are excited to offer Web & Marketing Workshops Series presented by Jen Wewers and Kimberly Beer. The Co-op has expanded to two monthly sessions: the classic morning session on the 1st Tuesday of the Month from 10-11:30am and an evening workshop from 6:30pm – 8:00pm!
