Hi Patricia,

I'm a big fan of Cargo - it's a bit more modern/minimal in it's template aesthetics, but it's competitively priced and geared directly toward professional artists and creatives. They have a wealth of lovely, very easy to populate templates, plus plenty of room for customization if you've got a little coding know-how (or want to explore their support database - which covers most things you can think of!). I've had nothing but good experiences with them hosting my own portfolio site.

*I'd also drop a note about MailChimp for email marketing campaigns - a most excellent and easy platform for growing and communicating with your audience.

Have fun with the new class!

Hi All,
I'm getting ready to teach a new class for me for our Botanical Art and Illustration program on preparing for their future art career. One of the items that I will be covering is web portfolios. 

My website was designed by a friend and I paid more money than most our student's would be willing to spend. Most of our students are also older and not very web savvy either.

Are any of you familiar with places that our student's could pay a minimal fee or provide free templates? I am going to encourage them to join the ASBA and let them know about Botanical Artistry. Are there other botanically oriented websites out there that I am ignorant of?
