    Registration will close on Thursday, November 18th at 4:30pm.


**This workshop will be live streamed via Zoom.** 

This course provides the hands-on writing of an “artist’s statement.” During the class, students examine samples of working artists’ biographies, and determine the essential elements in an effective statement. Various styles are discussed, and a list of key words and sentence starters are reviewed.

A template is provided and all participants will begin to outline their biography with some easy and fun creative exercises that are sure to bring out their personal style. Participant’s work will be reviewed, with direct feedback from the instructor and others. We’ll discuss how to make minor variations in order to address specific audiences like a fine art gallery or small gift shop.

And finally, we’ll develop a polished statement to effectively generate interest in the artist and their work. Helpful marketing hints are interjected throughout this course, including writing a press release.

This workshop is appropriate for all types of artists from visual artists to writers and performing artists.

Handouts are provided. Students should bring paper and pen, and (optionally) electronic writing  devices they are familiar with.
