Web Presence for Artists: August 29th, 2012

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 info@lynnemedsker.com. 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.

  1. Would you consider scheduling one at GOTS? This is the sort of thing we need to have here to bring artists into our group and HCAC.
