Rhode Island School of Design Adjunct Professor Clara Lieu will be giving a two-part lecture for visual artists. In this first lecture, she will present the various social media platforms available and provide practical, straightforward advice for how a visual artist can best harness these platforms to pursue their career goals. Participants will find out which social media platform is best suited to their needs; learn concrete strategies to use social media effectively; and benefit from on-the-spot critiques of several pre-selected social media platform sites of local artists. This program is part of the Newton Festival of the Arts and is free and open to the public.
The second lecture in the series, “Web Sites for Artists,” will be held on May 17th, also at the Newton Free Library at 7pm.
