Once you make your work, whether you are a painter or a sculptor, the next step is to get your work out there and share it with the world. This presentation will provide an introduction to creating your own portfolio website.
We will start with the thinking behind why you need a site. And the importance of getting your work out there. How you can use it to find jobs or freelance work.
Then we will discuss the best online tools and platforms to build your website on. Which one is better for certain things, and what is different about each of them. We will also discuss how to design your site a bit to make it unique.
And we'll finish up talking about what to do once you have your website. How do you promote yourself and get the word out.
The goal by the end of the course is for you to be able to go home and have everything you need to start making your own portfolio website!
