Blue Monkey Network: An Introduction to Instagram with Beth Bowman
Lots of artists use Instagram to promote their practice but how many use it effectively? In this short workshop Beth Bowman will take us through an introduction to Instagram as a platform, what makes it different and how can you combine it with your other social accounts to best benefit you and your practice.
She will talk about how to use the tools it offers to their best potential, how to establish your style and how you can grow your following as well as talking us through some of the dos and don’ts of using Instagram. There will be a short practical element to the workshop experimenting with ways of creating a flatlay photograph for posting online and participants will be asked to bring a few objects that they would like to photograph to reflect their practice.
