We are excited to announce the official launch of INK – SLCC’s Student Visual Art & Design Group.
If you are reading this, it’s because you share our enthusiasm for good design. You are devoted to your craft. You are constantly learning and developing your skills. And you understand that networking is not about making a sea of acquaintances, but about creating genuine connections and helping EACH OTHER out.
In this group, you will benefit from bi-monthly meetings where we will discuss each other’s work; participate in group projects, activities and events; partner with other groups and organizations; attend lectures, workshops, field trips and more.
Our FIRST OFFICIAL INK meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 1st from 4-7pm in Parlor B (located on the sub level of the Student Center at the Taylorsville Redwood Campus).
The first meeting is an important one, so please, if you cannot attend, contact INK at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As new members, you have also been invited to join the INK website at inkslcc.wordpress.com. This site serves as our online critique forum and general hub of all things INK. An easy to set up WordPress User Name is required to post and comment. Remember that everyone benefits if everyone participates, so it is a requirement of INK membership to obtain your WordPress User Name.
1) Go to WordPress.com
2) At the top of page, click “Sign Up”
3) You are not required to start a WordPress site of your own, but they are very useful for creating online portfolios and an online portfolio is strongly suggested.
If you wish to start your own WordPress site:
Complete all the fields on the sign up page to register both your WordPress site and User Name.
If you DO NOT wish to start your own WordPress site:
On the Sign Up page, to the bottom right of the “User” field, click “Sign up for just a username”. Complete the fields on the next page to get your WordPress User Name only.
4) Now, all you have to do is go back to the INK invitation you received via e-mail and click the link to join the site. You should see your user name in the top right corner of the screen when your membership is confirmed.
Once signed up, you may edit your profile as you wish. If you are having trouble obtaining your WordPress User Name, we will address any registration issues at the first meeting. There will also be a tutorial on how to use the critique features of the site so that everyone can start posting their work and receiving feedback.
THANK YOU for becoming a member! Your participation makes INK possible.
See you at the first meeting!
