Sperryville ARTists Cooperative – 3 River La., Studio 1A in the River District, Sperryville, VA  22740

As a visual, fine or graphic artist it is important to have a body of work that represents your skills and talents.   To get work in the industry, or be represented by a studio or gallery, it’s essential to have both traditional and online portfolios. Online representation is replacing the print resume as the best way to showcase yourself as an artist.   In this workshop we will review your finished work, present it either chronologically, by medium or subject; create digital files; show you how to upload your files electronically or create an effective online portfolio and recommend several online sites where you may publish your work.  Cost covers digitizing your work and saving your files on a storage device that you can continue to build on.   Reservations required. Space is limited. For reservation: 571-213-2749 or email artiststudio@livingsky.org. 1-4 pm
