Tools Not Rules – How to Make Great Web Design

Thursday, May 3, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

RSVP / Register
What makes great design? In celebration of ArtWeek, GA is introducing and exploring key tools that all designers should be leveraging in this interactive workshop. Participants will leave the workshop with an ability to identify common tools and how to integrate them into their daily work.

While this interactive workshop has a focus on all web design, it’s mere premise is built around the idea that these are tools, not rules. Which also means it’s not just for web designers, but people of all arts and crafts.

By signing up for this event, you’re giving our partners and sponsors for this event permission to contact you about upcoming events and promotions.

About Our Partners

ArtWeek Boston

Presented by Highland Street Foundation and produced by the Boch Center, ArtWeek has become an annual award-winning innovative festival featuring hundreds of unique and creative experiences that are hands-on, interactive or offer behind-the-scenes access to artists or the creative process. Launched in 2013 and produced by the Boch Center as part of a strategy to strengthen its role in both the community and the creative economy beyond just its downtown historic theaters, ArtWeek’s growth has been explosive.

In May 2017, the Boch Center announced ArtWeek was expanding statewide and recently launched a new logo, website address (, and social media channels—check us out @ArtWeekMA. We also announced that the Mass Cultural Council and Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism have become our new Lead Champions. Working with these two statewide partners will allow for the development of regional hubs with an expanding showcase of the Commonwealth’s creative economy. So mark your calendars now – the next ArtWeek festival will take place from April 27 – May 6, 2018!
