We would like to thank everyone, all few thousand of you, who visited Watershed Studio during the 17th Annual Stutz Artists Open House on Friday, April 23rd and Saturday, April 24th at the Stutz Business Center in downtown Indianapolis. And if you missed it, select artists are always open noon-five on the first friday of every month, so be sure to swing by and get in touch if you plan on stopping by.
Related, we would like to announce the launch of the Watershed Studio Gallery website which showcases Brian's paintings and photographs as well as the work of the rest of our team. If you weren't able to make it out to the Open House, be sure to stop by the website to see what you missed.
Indy Media School is the new business venture that we hinted at last month. And if you were at the Open House you probably heard about it to some extent (and a few people even participated in recording podcast bits).
To offer the elevator pitch version, Indy Media School is a joint partnership between Brian Groce (Watershed Studio & Surge Bucket Media) & his good friend Jeff Stanger (Blue Trolley Press). The focus for the initial courses will be related to digital media (blogs, podcasts, videcasts, etc) and social media (Twitter, Facebook, etc.) in an intimate setting. And by intimate we mean that class sizes will be small in order to offer individual attention to everyone as opposed to many training sessions that we've seen where you're talked at instead of talked to.
We're currently polishing the course material and plan to start offering our first classes in June.
It has been a work in progress since 2008, but we are getting closer to hosting WordCamp Indy. In late March we held our first planning session and we are tentatively aiming for Fall 2010. In the coming months we will continue to hold planning sessions for anyone who is interested in helping out. Be sure to check out the WordCamp Indy website for up-to-date information.
