Workshop

Intro to Online Marketing

for Artists & Writers
Get a comprehensive overview of how online marketing works, and what you need to do to make it work for you. Too many online marketing and sales courses demand that you give up valuable studio/writing time or lots of dollars to get it started and working. Find out here how the process works, and how to start small and scale up as you grow. You’ll get a downloadable and printable reference glossary to use going forward as you build. Online isn’t harder than offline – it’s only a little different, and we’ll compare clearly in this discussion with a short Q&A afterward. Come find out how and encourage yourself to try it out at your own pace. With Lois Peterson’s Writer's Marketing Online group, on Zoom, Tuesday, Dec 13, from 7 pm to 7:30 pm. No charge.

Adele moved away from the traditions of her adopted family while journeying toward those of her biological family. She now carves cedar, beads contemporary Métis and plains style traditional beadwork, and creates hide textiles and digital art. She has completed the Reconciliation Carving program at Langara and holds diplomas in both Fine Art and Graphic Design. In 2019 she finished a hide tanning residency with Fern and Roe and continues to mentor upcoming hide tanners.

and sharing awe through detail. We are the stories we hear and tell each other; this is our world.  Through story we find connection, and relation to one another’s experiences. This is my language, these are my stories. “ 

             ~ Adele Arseneau

“My work is about stories

Currently, Adele is a member of the Cowichan Valley Arts Council, North Vancouver Arts Council, Seymour Art Gallery, CARFAC, and is a consultant for the Metis Nation BC’s Culture & Heritage Working Group.

Autumn at Second Bay

Nov/Dec Featured artist

Jim Baker

Jim Baker is a West Coast landscape artist who paints the lush and beautiful forests of Vancouver Island. His landscapes are an exploration into the harmony, cooperation and interdependence that work together to create the strong and vital forests.

Jim’s technique is to generate a chaotic weave of brushstrokes, yet out of the chaos emerges the enriched image. Each brushstroke suggests and invites the viewer to see deeper into the painting. The use of highly energized brushstrokes and their suggestions leads the viewer to a highly personalized experience with the painting.

Jim Baker will present a collection of his paintings at TOSH (The Old Schoolhouse Gallery, Qualicum Beach) from June 26, 2023, to August 28, 2023.

To contact Jim Baker and to see more of his work, visit jimbakerstudio.ca
