Artist Statement Workshop

Oct 12
Location To Be Announced
0.00 CEUs,
1 Session

Paddy Johnson Writer, curator

Many artist statements are lacking in substance and form. Take this workshop and yours can stand out as exceptional. In this workshop we will discuss the purpose of an artist statement, and perform a series of writing exercises that will help you create clear, concise and compelling prose-now and in the future. Importantly, we will be working to make your statement the best it can be. By the end, not only will you be ready to apply to grants, fellowships and residencies, but you'll be better equipped to talk about your work to professionals and strangers alike.
NOTE: Students should bring their laptop and any previously written artist statements to the class.
