We will talk about:
-How to work within SquareSpace
-Creating good habits
-What an artist site should have
-We will touch on branding — what is yours?

*Squarespace does have a free trial period. No purchase required, just be aware that sites created that week ‘disappear’ unless converted to a paid Squarespace site (can be as little as $12 per month).
**Adobe Cloud Photoshop does offer free trial subscriptions — a CC is needed, and will be charged unless canceled at the end of the trial period.

Limited to just 8 students so register now!


The photographic images of B. McCormick fluctuate between Man-made structure(s) and Nature, creating and questioning visual depth when elements collide. Often her images give a sense of tactile "grit" in the air. Working with pinhole cameras and similar, she captures images that often test balance and footing – metaphorically or actual. At one time an Architectural Photographer and Industrial Designer, B. McCormick is now pursuing her personal work.

Recent juried shows include: Nude Nite Orlando, Nude Nite Tampa, and the Griffin Museum of Photography. The work is in private collections and has been shown in galleries and museums throughout the US. Visit her website at bmccormick-artist.com.
