More and more galleries now expect artists to have a website portfolio. In
this competitive art world arena, how can you make yours stand out from the
rest? This workshop will offer tips to help you enhance your images,
evaluate the success of your existing website portfolio and/or learn what to
ask from a designer you hire to create one.

Presenter RUTH ANN ANDERSON will start by projecting selected websites on a
screen to evaluate their content and technical sophistication. Then she will
deconstruct the components into tangible steps that can be implemented to
create unique digital portfolios with stunning images, engaging color
schemes, compelling content and clear navigation. There will be plenty of
time for questions and answers.

RUTH ANN ANDERSON teaches at California State University Northridge. As a
public artist, she understands the need for an easily accessible and
compelling website portfolio. As a designer and educator, she understands
the technology and aesthetic values behind such a website.

TO REGISTER: Make your check payable to SCWCA and mail it to Ann Isolde,
1127 16th Street, Unit F, Santa Monica, CA 90403 with your email address,
telephone number and website url (if you have one).
