DAVID WordPress Artist Themes

All the WordPress artist themes are built on the Parent theme David. You can read about parent – child themes on FAQ. You can purchase David alone or packaged with one of it’s child themes.

I like working with a parent theme because it makes it easy to update the code for all the themes just once. Bonus for me. The BONUS for you is that you get TWO themes, the parent and the child and can chose to activate either one.

How the WordPress Artist Themes got their names

Well if you’re an artist you’ve probably already figured that out. I decided to name the themes after famous works of art and artists. David, for example, is named after Michelangelo’s David. Cassatt after artist Mary Cassatt, and so on.


Individual WordPress Tutorials for Artists

In WordPress, each image you upload to the Media Library offers you the ability to define ALT and TITLE attributes. This provides search engines with text they can read, find and index your images.
