Social Media Skills for Artists
Sunday March 24
The venerable Karen Klassen presents…

Instagram and how to navigate social media...

Although Instagram is the main focus of this workshop, many of the ideas discussed can be applied to Facebook and Twitter.

Why Instagram? What is it for and why is it good for your your art career?
What do you want to achieve with social media?
How to have a consistent voice and a clearly defined aesthetic.
How to set up an account, and how to use the app.
Photos. What to include. What to leave out. What makes an artist page different than a personal page. How to photograph your work for sharing: POV, distance from artwork, detail shots, close crop (exact crop), situational (context) - in your studio? In your living room above a couch? Filters. Options to edit your photos and using different photo apps.
Posting frequency When? What’s the best times?
Who are you as an artist? What is your art like? What do you like to make? If you were a brand, what are 3 words you would use to describe your art? These words will lead you to how you can shape your account.
Captioning and #hashtags
How to auto/batch post
How to engage in other accounts and what it does for you.
Instagram Stories: How they work. How to use them.
About Karen Klassen
I am an illustrator, painter, and fashion artist.

I work with a variety of materials, using each for the unique quality they each possess.

Discovering new ways of making marks keeps me in the studio - I love texture and goop and the weird abstracted area of an image that is void of representation.

Some of the markets I've worked in include advertising, fashion and publishing, and I've worked with really great clients throughout the world.
