Build Your Art Website in 6 Weeks (REVISED)

Have you avoided building or updating your website because it seems too hard and time consuming? In this 6 week class we will work together, step-by-step from week to week, to create an easy to update 5 page website that includes: work from your latest art series, your artist's statement, upcoming events, artist CV, contact form, links to social media accounts, email newsletter sign up, and a dynamic homepage.

This class is for fine artists and craftspeople who need a website but are lacking support, direction, and accountability. Students should first take the Get Your Website Going workshop so their website content is ready to go or already have those requirements met. Successful students have photos of their work, an artist CV and bio, and some descriptive writing about their artwork. They are capable of performing basic image editing, posting to various social media accounts, and own a laptop or desktop computer. 
Students will need access to or purchase website hosting and a domain name costing approximately $100/year. Students can use Squarespace or Wordpress as the website content management system. Students will leave this class with a fully functional website that promotes their art practice and highlights their unique style and capabilities. They will have the tools and skills to add work to their site and keep it updated.

This class is self-paced using online learning materials supported by teacher office hours at set times and by-appointment. The term lasts for 6 weeks  but you are welcome to finish early. Students will need their own computers and access to the internet.
