Fine Art Studio Online (FASO and BoldBrush) partnered with PSST to offer our members a special benefit. Members creating a new website or transferring a website to FASO receive one year Gold Plan membership at a price that ... well, check it out on the PSST website Members Only page, under Sponsors. To get the offer, you must go through the link on that page.
Besides its great templates and features, FASO is adding loads of new options. Some make the business side of art easier and more profitable (like the patron bar), others just make the website fun (the Videos page!). If you have a FASO site and want to see what's happening, all in one place, from your Home Panel, click Marketing.
Why is the Videos page important? Because your videos are uploaded directly in your website, viewers are not over in YouTube--they are in your own domain; they'll see and click on your artwork. It's in beta testing but will be available to all soon.
How does it look? Check out my videos, especially the short one on Pastel Pencils and Sharpener
In this Stay Home Stay Safe era, many artists have generously made their educational resources available, at no fee. Top of that list is Eric Rhoades through his inventory of excellent videos. Sections of the videos are on YouTube, usually one to three hours of top notch instruction (try them on your TV!). There is artistry even in the level of filming.
If you like the artist and the manner of instruction, the full streaming video may be purchased at Streamline Art Videos.
What's happening in the pastel world? The stay home restrictions spurred us to find new ways to communicate, to share our work, attend workshops, and ... attend PSST meetings.
The fantastic board of PSST studied, learned, and zoomed. Today was the first virtual meeting of members and guests, via Zoom. Many thanks to the time Kouida Putman and Liz Czerewaty put into the technology. They were super. The photo below shows our ending smiles.
Save the date: Saturday, July 11, for an indepth explanation and demo of Sorolla techniques by Anne Maree Healey. Hope to see all members clicking in. Details on our website here.
