The photos you shoot for social media are the most critical part of having an effective online presence that represents your studio practice.

In this workshop, you’ll get customized feedback on your social media photos, and learn how to tweak your process to create content that is engaging to your audience.

“Overall, I had a great experience using Discord. I didn’t have to take notes! All the knowledge and conversations are saved. The people in the workshop were very open and assistive to bring up topics I wouldn’t dream of thinking of.”

How it Works


Before the workshop

  • Students receive access to the Premium Workshop channels.
  • Hang out in the workshop channels so we can see your artwork and site, and chat about your goals to make the workshop more efficient.
  • Please know that if you have no experience with Discord, it does take some time to get set up and learn how Discord works.
  • Watch this 53 second tour of our Discord for a preview.
  • We highly recommend joining several days before the workshop date so you can learn the ropes, troubleshoot any problems, and get help from us to make the workshop run as smoothly as possible for you.

During the workshop

  • Each student speaks on voice with Prof Lieu and Mia, speaking about their shorts.
  • While Prof Lieu, Mia, and a student are on voice, other students in the workshop make suggestions and interact with each other in the workshop channel.
  • If there is time, we will do a Q&A where anyone can ask questions on voice.

After the workshop

  • A recording of the workshop will be available to workshop participants. The recording will not be available to the public.
  • Students have access to the Premium Workshop channels for one week after the workshop date. Ask follow up questions, share resources, and more.

“The workshop guide was great and well prepared. The Art Prof website and resources were terrific, it’s so great to have the warm-up videos and reference photos before the event to get prepared.”
