Coming up in the new year, Cole Zrostlik, our Regional Coordinator in River Falls, and this year’s Workshop Facilitator will be leading a specialized workshop on the basics of marketing yourself as an artist. This free, hands-on workshop will walk participants through the set-up and creation of their first website using Wordpress.com, a free, user-friendly website-building platform. Participants will leave the workshop with a rough-draft version of their new site.
A word from Cole: "Marketing is a four-letter word for many artists. It's rarely taught as part of an art school curriculum, it's daunting to the more modest among us, and it's always changing (which can be very overwhelming). Still, marketing yourself and your work is essential to being a working artist, winning more grants, increasing your commissions, or getting others to notice you and your work. A big part of marketing yourself includes telling your story, and what better way to get started than by capturing your story and your work online in a professional, simple, and visually-appealing way!"
The workshop will occur Saturday, February 3, 2018 at 11:00am in the River Falls Public Library Lower Level
Participants: if possible, bring a personal laptop, images of work, and come with a goal in mind for your website (portfolio, online sales, blog, etc.). Basic computer skills are required to participate. No prior coding or website experience necessary. Registration requested. CLICK HERE to register.
