We are frequently asked if there's anything you all can do to help. Well, I'm here to cash in. Our poor Simple Joy art site has been sadly neglected for far too long because I just have not had time to tend to it. I have a list of over 700 artists I have to search through and find relevant art to add to the site. It is incredibly time-consuming. So as my mom always said of chores, "Either one person can spend 10 hours cleaning, or 10 people can spend one hour cleaning." I won't tell you how many times it just ended up being the one person....please don't make me do that...
All it takes is simple knowledge of Excel spreadsheets (you just have to know how to enter information in a field and insert a new line...very easy to learn if you don't know how already) and the ability to search Wikimedia Commons and copy/paste website links. I've provided here a link to an editable Google spreadsheet. Pick an artist name, look them up, and add relevant images! Easy peasy! Plus, you get to spend time just looking at fine art! It's very soothing to the soul.
A couple rules:
So grab your favorite artist and have at it! And let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you for all your help!
