Websites for Artists
This two-evening workshop provides an overview of how to establish a web presence to compliment your artistic practice. Participants will learn basic web theory and gain an understanding of how websites are constructed. Topics will include, how to choose the right hosting platform and design to meet your goals, how to register your domain name, as well as how to prepare content and publish it to your site. We will examine the creative potential of the medium as well as its use as a promotional tool. A variety of artist’s websites will be reviewed, discussed based on design and content choices and how that reflects each artist’s unique practice.
Each participant works at an individual iMac station. Students should be familiar with the Mac interface. No previous experience with web design required.
