Displaying your art online is a MUST. More and more exhibitions, sellers, and buyers want to see your talents, and they want to see them NOW! Your visibility is critical to your success. Artist Websites for Beginners is a starting point for the artist who needs to sell and display their work on the web at little to no cost. A professional looking website is a place where customers and organizations can see your talents and get a sense of your personality. In this workshop, we will build a WordPress website from the ground up using the free features offered by WordPress and free plugins and templates offered within the WordPress platform. You will learn how to find and install plugins as well as what various plugins can do for your site. Creating your own website will allow you more control over the rights and availability of your work without unnecessary censorship or third party dictation over what you can display and post. You will also learn the critical task of navigating the “back-end” of your WordPress site allowing you full control and functionality over how your site looks and feels. Together we will create a beautiful site that will give you the visibility you need in displaying your work to your ideal demographic. We will also cover some e-commerce options allowing you to create your own online art store with ease. This time set-up will allow you to practice at home between sessions and return with questions and concerns.
