Brief summary of class: Afraid of Facebook? Feel like you don’t understand how to use
social media? Then this is class for you! Professional artist and entrepreneur Rachel J.
Wheeler will walk you through the essentials of running and growing successful
Facebook page. Some topics that will be covered are: Facebook page creation, creating
your first post, and how to start growing your following to sell more art.
Rachel grew up in the small town of Oil City, PA where, from an early age, her
love for drawing far outweighed all other things. Surrounded by a creative and artistic
family, soon she wanted nothing but to be an artist. With her family’s encouragement
she began to pursue art as a career and Rachel graduated Summa Cum Laude from St.
Vincent College with a bachelor in Studio Arts in 2017. To this day she continues to
develop her talents by working as a professional artist in her new home of Latrobe, PA.
Her recent achievements include acceptance into the Mr. Fred Rodgers Juried Exhibit
(2018), holding her first solo exhibit ‘First Light’ (2019), and starting her own art
business (Rachel Wheeler Arts) where she currently creates paintings that emphasize
the immense beauty that can be found in the ‘little moments’ of each day.
For Rachel, the best part about being an artist is letting each painting teach her
something new. Every subject has their own challenges, their own lessons and you
never know what a painting will throw at you. She truly believes working in the studio
every day is the greatest teacher any artist could have.
