Art subjects: The importance of Social Media

Social media is vital for many artists and designers. Leading professionals to emerging creatives such as yourselves use it for sharing work, networking and finding new clients. Our students are forever required to find sources of inspiration to help take their work to the next level.

Once you are signed up to these social media platforms, you will have rich and varied influences to draw from. This could be to inspire your ideas and concepts or help introduce and develop your use of Art and Design media, both digital and no-digital.

It is recommended you allow these sites and Apps to feed you regular updates; this will help to keep you up to date on Art and Design trends, as well as sending you news and techniques to try out. Please spend an hour or so, setting up your profiles on these free platforms.
