Registration: This two-part workshop is FREE but you must register in advance and commit to both sessions. The workshop is now full.

The Lynden is offering a series of occasional professional skill-building workshops as part of the support for local artists we provide through the Nohl Fellowship program. Designed by and for artists, the workshops address frequently voiced needs and are free to artists.

Having an online presence has never been so important for artists. This two-part workshop offers practical information and tools for creating your website whether you are starting from scratch or have a pre-existing site in need of updating. Participants will learn how to prioritize goals for their website, determine potential audiences, and prepare work and other documentation. We will walk through deciding whether to self-design or hire a professional as well as looking at the many web host options. Whether your ideal website is one page with highly focused content or a comprehensive archive, the workshop offers do’s and don’ts to effectively communicate with your audience.

Participants will receive a digital, take-away package of information that recaps workshop content and serves as an ongoing resource for developing and maintaining your website.

About Paul Druecke
Paul Druecke created his first website in 1998 as an extension of his influential “Social Event Archive” (1997 – 2007), which was exhibited at the Milwaukee Art Museum in 2017. The project foreshadowed social media’s now familiar blurring of personal and public history. Andrew Goldstein, writing on, says, “A Social Event Archive is viewed as having prefigured social sites like Instagram by inviting people to give him personal snapshots that he then displayed.” Since those early days of self-taught html coding, Druecke’s website has evolved as an archive of his studio production and interest in reaching new audiences.

Druecke's work was included in the 2014 Whitney Biennial. A co-authored discussion of his work is anthologized in Blackwell and Wiley's Companion to Public Art (2016). He received a Greater Milwaukee Foundation Mary L. Nohl Fellowship for Individual Artists in 2010. Druecke has published two books with Green Gallery Press, Life and Death on the Bluffs (2014), and The Last Days of John Budgen Jr. (2010). His work has been featured in Camera Austria and InterReview, and written about in Artforum, Art in America,, and
