The Wellington Art Society will host Kim DiGiacomo as featured artist and speaker at the group’s next meeting at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 10 at the Wellington Community Center.
The topic will be “Instagram for Artists.” For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Step out of your comfort zone, embrace the process, and dive into the mess,” DiGiacomo said. “As students become confident in their own creative choices and ideas, they gain skills and become changemakers in life.”
Armed with a degree in computer animation and a lifetime of lessons learned as a colorblind artist, DiGiacomo is a rare gem in the art world. In love with art since childhood, she has been teaching for almost 25 years and currently has her own mobile art studio business, StudioFive6.com.
Facing and overcoming challenges as an artist with colorblindness has given her a unique perspective on life. Her motivation to bring the two together in her students propels them toward having confidence in using their own unique voice and expression in art and when making choices in life.
In the rapidly changing social media universe, DiGiacomo has learned how to navigate some of the more important apps to her advantage as an artist. She will share some of her experiences and give tips on how to make the best use of Instagram, one of the more popular tools available for marketing, sales and showcasing work as an artist. She will also talk about how artists can use their own unique voice to make their mark as an artist on social media.
The Wellington Art Society is a nonprofit charitable organization in its 42nd year. The group is open to artists of all mediums and patrons of the arts, allowing both local and regional artists to display their artwork in local galleries, interact with other artists and serve the community through their art.
