"from the artist's hand to the world's eye"
For those of us who are hands-on creative persons, showcasing ourselves on the world wide web via the internet can be very daunting. This virtual world seems to move at super sonic speed far from human pace of making art. Often we give up before we even start. This one-day workshop is based on this tenet: Start where you are. Take just one simple step at a time. Start is the keyword here.
The professional artist is represented by their actual artwork, and also by what is said and read about their work on the world wide web. The wise and savvy artist needs to be in control of his or her own “brand” or name as it shows up in the virtual world.
Do you want others telling the world about your work as an artist, or do you want your story told using your own creative voice?
