The Artist’s Website is an 8-week workshop that teaches artists how to self-publish an online portfolio using SquareSpace. You will have live sessions with your instructor, Dylan Yarbrough, every Thursday night between 6 pm and 8 pm. In addition to learning the SquareSpace software, we’ll talk about industry standards for Domain Name Acquisition, Hosting Plans, Art Documentation, File Handling, Artists Statements, e-Commerce, Search Engine Optimization, & more.
You do not need any website design experience to take this class! We do recommend that you have basic computer literacy and at least one portfolio of work that you can feature on your website. The only things you are required to have are a laptop, internet connection, and a SquareSpace subscription. NOTE: Do NOT create a SquareSpace account before class begins.
We will publishing a live website at the end of this course. This means there will be a few additional fees. A domain name purchased through SquareSpace usually costs $20. SquareSpace hosting plans start at $16/month.
“Dylan is an excellent teacher. Very well prepared, nice, clear, inspiring, and provides a lot of good information. He has adapted well to online teaching. I really enjoyed his workshop, ‘The Artist’s Website,’ and I got a lot out of it. He helped me create an attractive and professional website.”
