What Teaching Teaches You

by Luann Udell on 4/29/2010 12:12:46 PM
21 Comments

Someone who’s done me many favors in the past called me on a Friday. His 15-year-old son had a school assignment to work for an artisan for 20 hours. The assignment was due in...one week. In desperation (and with much embarrassment), he begged me to help out. I looked at my calendar. It was doable, so I said yes. He really was a nice kid. Shy. Quiet. Totally oblivious to women's jewelry or sewing. Not used to thinking about color, design, fashion. This could be painful, I thought. I was wrong. [...]

Fund Raisers That Do It Right

by Lori Woodward on 4/28/2010 12:39:23 PM
54 Comments

When no minimum (reserve) price set for a work, the buyers return each year to pick up artwork at bargain prices, and they rarely contact the artist to pay full retail price on additional paintings. This kind of exposure does more harm than good. [...]

If you are uncertain or afraid of failure as you work, your art will manifest that fear to the viewers. They will sense it. It shows in the tentative application of paint or clay or whatever your medium is. [...]

SEO For Artists: On-Page SEO vs. Off-Page SEO

by Clint Watson on 4/23/2010 9:50:32 AM
30 Comments

In my last article, I outlined some of the factors that we think Google uses to determine how to rank search results. This needs some more discussion. After all, if you're going to "optimize" your website for something, it helps to know the factors you're optimizing for...What you need to understand is that there are actually two types of SEO - on-page SEO and off-page SEO.

What Inspires Me to Make Art?

by Moshe Mikanovsky on 4/22/2010 12:59:04 PM
26 Comments

I was thinking about this question recently, mainly because I have times that I feel uninspired, too busy, too anxious to fail, or just lazy. So I decided I need to strengthen my art-making habits, and to do that, I have to find ways to be inspired and encouraged even if I don’t feel like it. [...]

How to Survive an Art Critique

by Miranda Aschenbrenner on 4/16/2010 7:40:06 AM
43 Comments

In art school, the most stressful part of any class was always the critique. This was when you put the results of your hard work up in front of everyone, explained your ideas, and waited for the criticisms - ahem, feedback - to come rolling in. This was when you put it all on the line to find out if anyone else thought what you were doing was valid. [...]

We Can Always Use Another Hero

And so I left my art as a young person. I thought it was the right thing to do. There was some relief in “letting go” of that dream. But something in me was sad, too. I pushed it down and tried to forget about it. [...]

SEO - Structuring URLs

by Clint Watson on 4/15/2010 9:51:52 AM
4 Comments

We recently discussed SEO and URLs over on FineArtViews. So how to you include search terms in your URLs with a FineArtStudioOnline website? The easy answer is - we do it for you. When you enter a new artwork in your FASO control panel, naturally you enter the title of the painting (or sculpture etc). We use that title to create an "SEO-friendly" URL. [...]

SEO for Artists: Structuring URLs

by Clint Watson on 4/15/2010 9:32:02 AM

I've become known as the "anti SEO" art marketing guy. That's because I've been quite public in my opinion that, for the most part, SEO is not a great use of an artist's marketing time...but...in the interest of "giving the people what they want", I'm starting a series called "SEO for Artist Websites" that will be a regular feature in FineArtViews from this point forward.....or at least until I run out of things to say.

Unveiling Canvoo

by Clint Watson on 4/13/2010 2:20:54 PM

Today we've unveiled the Canvoo "toolbar" on many of our sites. (You can see it right here - it's the green bar at the top of this page) What is Canvoo?   To answer that, you have to understand that we love art and we love working with artists.   Consequently, over the years, we've developed quite a few different but loosely related products that deal with art in different ways.  We started with FineArtStudioOnline, which is an easy turnkey system for artists to set up professional art websites.  Later we added FineArtViews, a daily newsletter about art marketing and inspiration.  Still later we created InformedCollector  - a [...]
