Getting Your Art Online Workshop

Your board is working hard to bring you value for your membership dollars which, as a subtle reminder, were due by the end of January. If you've already renewed for another year, we thank you. If you haven't yet renewed, there is still time. 

As we've processed 2015 membership renwals we find that there are still a lot of NTAL members that do not have a web presence. Following up on last year's Getting Your Art Online presentation, we've scheduled a hands-on workshop to help you get set-up for free.

Since we have a special general meeting in February to meet with Wil Lala on 2/12/15, we will use our normal 2/25/15 7pm-9pm meeting time for this special event.

Please review the presentation in advance of the workshop!

What to bring to the workshop:
  • Your laptop if you have one, NTAL Volunteers will bring their own laptops to help
  • Your email address
  • Your digital camera, tablet and/or smartphone
  • Your bio (plain text please) and photo in digital form on a thumb drive or sent via email
  • Large photos of a sampling of your artwork on a thumb drive or sent via email to put online 
  • Optional: Bring no more than 3 small originals that we can photograph for you (unframed w/o glass is best) as time permits
  • A pen and notepad to take notes for yourself so you can do this when you get home
  • Your child or grandchild if you are going to depend upon them to do this going forward

The plan:
  • Volunteers will be assigned to you in the order you arrive and will be available to help during the workshop only
  • Volunteers will help you establish a free account at Fine Art America which allows you to upload and sell prints of up to 25 images (unlimited images only costs $30 per year)
  • We will help you set up your FAA profile
  • We will show you how to upload your images
  • We will show you how to share your FAA images with our Friends of NTAL gallery
  • How far we get in one workshop session depends on the number of members trying to get online, the number of - We will link your new FAA site to your NTAL artists gallery listing
  • Additional workshop sessions will be scheduled as needed
