You’re making art and ready to share it with the world but your gallery shows, pop-up markets, and open studio events have disappeared. How are you supposed to connect with an audience when your usual opportunities aren’t there anymore? 

Luckily, you have technology on your side. And, you have an inkling that it might be the way to bridge the gap between the old way of showing your work and a new, online way.

Just a few months ago, you may never have entertained the idea of doing a virtual open studio event but you might be now warming to the idea. Maybe you’ve joined your local Open Studio event and need to prepare? 

If this is you, “How to Promote and Sell Your Work on Instagram and Facebook Live” on August 27, 5:30-7:30pm PT is for you. 

You’ll learn low-tech to high-tech approaches to opening up your virtual studio so you can decide what’s right for you, your work and your audience. And you’ll learn how to set up a Facebook & Instagram Shop so you’ll have a clear way to sell your work through an online platform.

After the presentation, you’ll have what you need to decide how you’d like to go virtual with your next open studio event and examples of how you might structure it that works best for you. 

Now’s the time to figure out how to show and sell your work online in a way that feels easy and genuine. Once you see how easy it is to do, you’ll be excited to plan your next online art event! And the technology of it won’t feel like you’re climbing Mt. Everest. 

Go from feeling overwhelmed about how to do a virtual open studio event to having the plan and tools you need to be successful with it. You’ll know how to organize your virtual event no matter how long it is and how to create a shop online where you can sell your work.
