Websites for Art Groups
Websites for Art Groups, Textile Art Groups and Art Trails tend to be large sites featuring many artists. They must look professional, current and stylish and are an essential marketing tool to support the group’s activities.
Often such groups have been in existence for many years but frequently the group’s website is an ongoing cause of concern. Many groups do not have reliable website strategies. Common issues include:
- Partners, sons, daughters, nieces, and nephews offer their web design services for free, but often do not have the expertise or time or ongoing commitment to maintain such a large site.
- Committees come and go and management of the website is often the website is passed from pillar to post.
- Many groups do not have members with the technical skills needed to maintain such a large website.

Taking over an existing Art Group website
If you already have a website, we can take over the site and manage it for you. We will review your site and advise on the best way ahead. In practice, this may mean converting your site to a WordPress website or if your current site is already a WordPress site, we can re-theme it to give it a contemporary new look.
You can update your site yourself, or use our maintenance service
All our websites are built using WordPress and can be set up so you can edit the content yourself. If nobody in your group is confient in using computers, you can use our website maintenance service instead where we do the updates for you. Or you can do both!
