The first few workshops in my new roster (image editing & working with WordPress, both for beginners) have gone sooo well this week! I’m getting great feedback on the quantity of information I’m offering, patient and effective instruction, value of the information presented for the price, and even my teaching style. It’s so rewarding to see artists move from apprehension and self-doubt to having fun using their newly acquired skills so quickly, and I’m proud of the progress last week’s participants have already made. Check out my calendar for current workshop dates and, whether you plan to DIY or need to feel more confident when dealing with your own webmaster, let me help you take control of your online presence!
By request of two of last week’s participants, I’m announcing that the Image Editing Practice Session for Beginners has been extended to include two dates each month indefinitely, on Thursdays from 10am – 12:30pm. Those who need help with their image editing skills can drop in for a practice session whenever they can, or join the two current participants for a weekly session where supervised practice will hone your skills and help commit them to memory. I will be happy to add an additional ongoing practice session where you can bring your questions, learn more, and practice your image editing skills with me there to help you on a different day/time, as I’ve heard from several artists who can’t make it on a Thursday.
Please email me or use Doodle to request a new date and/or time and I’ll add it to my calendar.
Scheduling for an additional date of the Intro to Image Editing workshop is now underway! Norm Rossignol proposed that we schedule another occurrence of this workshop on Monday, March 11 from 10am – 12:30pm. If you wanted to attend this workshop but the published date and time did not work with your schedule, please click this link to participate in the new session. Here’s more information about this workshop and a PayPal button to pre-register:
A two hour overview of essential image editing information with a half hour question and answer session. Follow along on your own computer or take notes and plan to gets some hands-on practice with me to help you in the followup work sessions. Information regarding metadata and how to embed it in your images is crucial to artists and is a prerequisite for following sessions. You should know how to do this, along with editing your image to it looks its best, before uploading and sharing images of your art online!
All clients and any blogger using WordPress should back up their databases and update WordPress without any further adieu! That is, if you haven’t done so already. While you’re at it, update your themes and plugins if you find that updates are available. These updates not only increase the reliability and functionality of your blog, make it run faster and increase security for you and visitors to your site. If you need a hand with this, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Though Janet has boldly updated various parts of tamlondonhummingbirdarts.com numerous times, her site’s home page remained unchanged since its launch early in 2008. During this time she has done many creative experiments with her art and her workshops, growing and learning in the process, and recently decided that the Luminous Mandala workshops she facilitates with friend and colleague Diane Tibbitts have so outshined the others she has done that she wanted to showcase them and the path she took to reach them on her landing page. The luminous mandalas she and her students create are beautiful, and the success of the therapeutic healing work that accompanies the art is far beyond what she has seen with other techniques. Have a look and enjoy reading the outline of her wonderful journey!
Well, I have had a little time here and there to continue working on my portfolio, so please take a look to see some of my older work. I’ll stay with it, and hope to have it complete and syndicated to my Facebook page shortly as I have a substantial quote to write up for a prospective client and another prospective client to meet with on Wednesday…Wish me luck, these are two really interesting projects I would love to do!
