1. Sharing Your Techniques
We all start at the same place, having little to no experience with the basic techniques of our craft. As we work more in the medium of our choice we may purchase books, sign up for online courses or even take a hands-on workshop. All of these provide you with new information to share with your readers, email list or post on your website.
2. Local Events You Are Involved In
Are you participating in an upcoming Art Fair, open studio or group/single show? All of these are great experiences to share with your readers. Share pictures and suggestions about past experiences; how to prepare for an open studio event, or what is involved in setting up for a show. Be sure to include information if this is an annual event that you will be attending at a future date.
3. Completed Artwork
This might sound like a no-brainer but many artists do not write blog about their new art. Share your new artwork, discuss your process, explaining how you created the work. Share the story behind your artwork, what inspired you to create the new piece you are showcasing. Readers love to connect at a more personal level.
4. Work In Progress
People love to see art come to life. Sharing with your readers your progress on a specific painting creates an instant connection to the work on a personal level for your readers. They look forward to your updates and will love to help you celebrate it's completion.
We all learn from our experiences and that includes are mistakes. Your readers will love for you to share some of these mistakes and how you solved them. Writing about your challenges with a new technique or painting makes you appear more human and allows your readers to connect with you on a more personal level.
6. Supply Reviews
Most artist love to explore new tools and techniques. This side of exploration is an integral part of the creative process. Your readers will love for you to share your experiences with these new tools and techniques. Include information about why you wanted to try something new. Share advice with your readers about how to use the the tools or take care of them. Artist are always looking for reviews of new tools on the market or how did a specific technique work for you.
If you are new to blogging or are struggling to come up with ideas to share with your readers these ideas are a great place to start. Sharing on a regular schedule is a key step to promoting your online presence and your artwork.
Have a great week and stay safe.
