Instagram for Artists
For many artists, creating authentic Instagram content that conveys their identity as a creator and an individual can be a challenge–even a chore. In this workshop for visual artists, Robin Cembalest provides a roadmap to move forward, covering topics including crafting your profile, sharing your practice, promoting shows and projects, and how to build networks, connections, and thought leadership. She’ll review strategies for posts, Stories, Reels, hashtags, highlights, and for maximizing the power of that mysterious algorithm. All registrants will receive a recording of the workshop and workshop resources.
