Two-Part Free Workshop:  Kurt Weiser and Regina Burchett: "Get Your Art Out There!"


In this afternoon workshop, Kurt Weiser will demonstrate how to set up and photograph a finished pastel painting. He will explain the settings needed on a digital camera to take the perfect digital picture.  From there, he will download the pictures to the  computer, and using Adobe Photoshop software, he will edit, size and save them to a CD. This will give the artists the tools to start a digital portfolio or add to it. Kurt will also give advice and answer questions for getting your art out to the public through exhibitions, galleries and societies.

Regina Burchett has been creating artist websites for over ten years and currently works for Fine Art Studio Online (FASO) as a tech support agent. She will discuss marketing, website options from Free to Professional, search engine optimization, and social media such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instragram. In addition, she will cover how to find and organize images and files on your computer, computer shortcuts, and graphics software options. Questions are always welcome! 

Remember to bring your laptop, camera, and something to take notes on!

This is the only PPS workshop this year that will be held at the McDowell Art Center. No cost to members or guests. No need to register.
