I was helping some artists I know with their websites. They wanted to learn to build there own site rather than having to keep paying someone to make changes and additions. Fair enough!!
What I realized was that I know quite a bit about this topic. I started working on web development about 20 years ago. I had a workplace injury when I was a baker and cake decorator. Repetitive strain....sucky. I was taught to decorate cakes by a woman who was left handed and so I decorated left handed. I am actually right handed. Or at least mostly......
Thank goodness for this!! I was re-educated and got into 3-D animation and basic web animation. I actually hated it! Being in front of a computer all day long made me feel crazy. But it taught me some skills that today have helped me immensely.
As an artist I know the value of saving money in as many places as I can so I can buy more paint! Paying someone to do my website and business cards was NOT going to happen in my world. So I sat in front of that dreaded computer and learnt. I learnt as much as I needed to get my website up.
What has happened over that last 5 years or so has been fantastic. Wix, Squarespace, Wordpress etc. These sites have made it possible to make your won website quite easily. Unless you grew up with the phone still attached to the wall.......
There is a hump here that this generation, my generation has to still overcome. But luckily it only looks like a mountain, once you're shown how its not that difficult. So....I am offering workshops for those of us who did not grow up with computers and still need a little assistance.
They are made affordable and designed to Empower You. From one artist to another "You can do this!!"
