By Sandra Cerna

With limited time and money, artists and other small business owners need an effective content strategy that makes posting quick, easy, and impactful. Learn to use every aspect of the Instagram app (reels, stories, IGTV, posts), optimize your profile, establish your brand, and create fun and engaging posts designed to retain and grow your following. The Canva platform and the Lifelapse (stop motion) apps are used as tools in this class for beginning to intermediate Instagram users who have fewer than 500 followers.

Students are required to have a smartphone or tablet with which to post and have the Canva and Lifelapse apps downloaded prior to the first class (each comes with a 30-day free trial).
