I was invited to share some information with local artists about online presence and social media. I know enough about it to know I don’t know it all – but I’m excited to share what I do know! Here is the class information. If you’d like to join, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we can find a workable date in the near future I may be presenting this again on a Saturday for those that aren’t available during the week.
