CREATING YOUR DIGITAL PORTFOLIO
Creating your Digital Portfolio is a class for artists that need to get their portfolios online. We will discuss successful website design, the specific needs of each participant, how to acquire a domain name, proper photographing and documentation of artwork, grouping of images to create the strongest portfolios and how to write a résumé and artist statement. We will also research and find different website creation routes and ultimately choose the tools that work best for each artist. The goal is for each student to have a functioning professional artist portfolio website by the end of the session.

"Ribbons are a duo of Brooklyn transplants from California who come forth with one of the most promising rock debuts I've heard in a long while. Consisting of vocalist/guitarist/bassist Jenny Logan and drummer/backing vocalist Sam Roudman, they deliver the raw, stripped intensity of early Factory Records stalwarts like the Durutti Column and Joy Division while harnessing the propulsion, angularity, and energy of a group like Josef K. Though this sound has most certainly been reexamined by plenty of bands, it's refreshing to hear Logan's distinctly female take on what has always been a male-dominated style, both vocally and instrumentally. Roudman ends up being the secret weapon, though, keeping things interesting with his wild, propulsive, Keith Moon-meets-Stephen Morris style, while his roots playing in metal bands definitely shine through in his double-time bass drum attacks and odd, wailing vocal harmonies."
From Athens, GA, Dead Dog play a solid angular rock and roll set sure to impress and nostalgate (is this even a word..make it so!) anyone for a penchant for 90's Dischord era punk aesthetics. so good.
Atlanta's Scaffolds will close the night out with some kind of wonderful shuffling ambience. Comprised of the members of Nigredo, this alter ego outfit utilizes a rotating cast of guest musicians and an anything goes instrument policy to create a soothing sweet texture that will make your ears write thank you notes to your feet for bringing you to the show.
