From top to bottom you’ll walk away from this course with a fully functional WordPress based website, the knowledge of how to use it to your advantage and the ability to extend it yourself in the future. We’ll work through the process of planning, building and perfecting your website. We’ll focus on thinking through the purpose of your website in relationship to your artistic practice and goals, consider strategies for presentation, content development and keeping things fresh— all while learning the mechanics of doing it yourself.

A thoughtful, professional online presence is essential to developing your reputation, your persona and your audience as an artist. A single image, sentence or video can reach an unlimited number of prospective clients, peers and potential fans. While social media platforms work well for promotion and connection building, they’re best when used as a compliment to a dedicated, well considered website that centres on you and your work.

Note: Students are required to bring their own laptops to class for hands-on instruction and should be prepared to spend between $50 and $120 per year on the related, ongoing costs of a professional website.
