Visual Artists & Social Media Workshop

The Social Media Workshop on Saturday was well attended. Carol Thomson is a dynamic speaker. Her presentation was energizing and inspirational. In addition to showing us how to set up a Facebook business page, Carol shared with us resources to help us better promote our work as artists. We look forward to future ChiVAA workshops!
