Workshops We Offer
Please note we can offer both workshops together. We would simply work with you to structure it appropriately.
Build Your Online Portfolio in Less than 1-Hour!(1-2 hour workshop depending on questions)
Have you been putting off creating your website because it seems difficult and will take a long time? Well, in this hands-on workshop, ArtSites co-founders, Rochelle Grayson and Geoff Meredith will walk you through the simple steps to setup an ArtSites website and load it with your images in less than 1 hour!
In this workshop, you will learn how to:
- Easily and quickly upload your photos
- Select a website design that works for your work
- Create new galleries
- Create your bio / artist statement
- Start a blog
- Embed YouTube videos into your website
- And many more activities...
For these workshops, it is recommended that artists bring their laptops, and/or a CD or USB flash drive with images of their artwork. However, this not a requirement. We will go step-by-step through the ArtSites setup process and answer all questions that come up in the process.
Social Media for Visual Artists(1-3 hour workshop depending on what's covered/required)
Are you trying to understand, sort through and make decisions about how social media can work for you? Please join ArtSites co-founders, Rochelle Grayson and Geoff Meredith, as they present concrete strategies and examples of how you can use social media to increase your brand, market your skills, and ultimately, sell your artwork!
In this workshop, you will learn:
- How to Setup a Manageable & Maintainable Social Media Strategy
- Why Having Your Own Website Still Makes Sense
- Why and How to Use:
- Facebook Pages
- Mobile Apps & QR Codes
(While this workshop is focused on visual artists, it may also be of interest to other creative individuals and/or small businesses selling "visual products".)
Rochelle has been teaching the Social Media Strategy & Marketing and Social Media Monetization courses at the University of British Columbia (UBC) for the past 5 years. She is also the Industry Chair and Program Advisor for UBC's Digital Media Strategy Certificate Program and Social Media Award of Achievement Program. As a result, she will bring a broad range of knowledge and lessons learned to this workshop.
