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.

* Sites created in this course will be hosted on WordPress.com. The cost of hosting your site is additional to the registration fee for the course. The cost will be between $50 and $300/year depending on which hosting package meets your website’s needs. We will discuss in-class the various options available and which is best for you.
