This course takes place over seven sessions, on each Thursday evening from April 5 to May 10 as well as the morning & afternoon of Saturday, May 12.
Registration deadline: April 4, 2018

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: The class is held in a media lab with MAC computers for hands-on instruction. Students can choose to bring their own laptops as well. Individuals should be prepared to spend between $50 and $120 per year on the related, ongoing costs of a professional website.

Instructor: Don Betts is a freelance website designer and developer who uses WordPress to create website solutions for his clients. He has a background working for not-for-profit organizations where he first started making websites. He has been building websites using WordPress for 8 years and has been active in the Winnipeg WordPress community. Don’s passion for matching good design with the goals of his clients has given him many opportunities to work with amazing people and organizations. He works primarily with small businesses and not-for-profit organizations.
