of roma and etruria and michelangelo

Finally, at long last, we launched a website for Martha Wakeman, a pastel artist, and her husband Robert Proctor, a professor of Italian at Connecticut College. It’s here: http://www.marthawakeman.com and I’m pretty pleased with the way it’s turning out. We have some more photos of venues and topics to add in, maybe a map or two, in the Art & Study Retreats in Italy sections.

We created the site using ExpressionEngine so it would be easy to maintain and update, particularly the Gallery. We plan to add in a payment system for those who want to make reservation deposits or pay for a retreat online—that will go up in a few days or so.

The planning challenge was for it to handle Martha’s artwork and the Art & Study Retreats in Italy on the same site. Placing the content for the Retreats section was fun since I did most of it while watching it snow—prompted dreams of Italy. Rome is near the top of my list for places I want to go within the next ten years. Take a look at the Retreats descriptions and see if they don’t make you want to get or update your passport and start packing.

  1. Nice site!  Robert Proctor is a well-regarded professor at Conn, and I’m quite pleased to see more and more Conn profs get online with their life’s work.

    Kudos from the annoyingly winter-free DC!
