Workshop - ArtBlog: Creating an Online Visual Journal

In March I will be teaching a workshop at the Carnegie Museum of Art.

cmoaworkshop07.jpg Sat. March 17, 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. and Sat. March 24, 9:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

$68 members/$84 nonmembers

Become part of the world of artists online by learning how to create and manage your own artblog - a blog about your own visual world. Whether you work in traditional or digital media, feature your art on your own free and easy-to-maintain weblog. Join the community conversation, exchanging comments and encouragement with other artists online, or simply create an ongoing record of your work to share with friends and family.

At the end of this hands-on workshop, you will have created your own online gallery, and you will be able to maintain it - yourself.

Basic computer operation, email, and internet browsing experience are recommended; no other specialized skills required.

Class size is limited. Please call 412.622.3288 to register for the workshop or download the registration form here. More information is available on the Museum's website.

I look forward to drawing and blogging with you.

I'd like to reserve two places for this workshop. Coming long distance from two directions....(east and west of Pittsburg)... in that there are two places left... should we bring cameras? artwork? and do you have suggestions of places to stay that are inexpensive? ... yet quaint and/or comfortable?

Wonderful. You need to contact the Museum directly to reserve spaces in the workshop.

A camera is not needed for the first Saturday workshop, but you will want to work with digital images of your artwork for the second Saturday workshop. You will want a small sketchbook and pencil and eraser for drawing in the galleries (they generally don't allow other media).

I don't know about the best hotel or B&B options - let me ask some friends and I will send you an email!

Thanks for your interest... I look forward to meeting you.

Hi Elizabeth. Are the (same) workshops repeated on two different days?

Penny - any time you can come from Australia you are very welcome!

Hi, Karen.

It was a two-weekend-long workshop, which I guess did not work for many people, so the museum decided to cancel. They may try to set up a single session workshop this summer or in the fall - and I hope to get the information early on and post it here! But feel free to email the museum and ask...
