Are you struggling to translate your art practice into words?
Professional Writing for Visual Artists: Summer Boot Camp is a virtual summer writing intensive workshop that helps visual artists build a more engaging and sustainable practice.
Through presentations, small group discussions, one-on-one consulting, and guided writing assignments with detailed how-to instructions, you will learn to use writing as a part of your process and develop and present an essential professional portfolio. Leave with well-crafted project statements, project proposals, an artist statement, a CV, and a biography, as well as strategies for keeping your statements updated, modifying each for different platforms, and more.
Goals: Participating artists will develop a strong portfolio of writing which they can use to present their work in multiple contexts such as residency and grant applications, websites, press outreach, and other uses. They will learn style guidelines and strategies to produce texts beyond the workshop with confidence.
Outcomes: Artists who participate in this course will:
–Learn to articulate the process and the ideas behind their work in a concisely written artist statement, project statements, and press releases
–Learn to compose compelling biographies and professionally crafted CVs
–Learn to mobilize writing for applications, press outreach, and self-promotion
–Understand the professional practices of an active artist.
One-on-one Meetings: During the course, you will have 30-minute individual meetings with both Faith and Liz.
Accountability Partners: During our first class, you will be given an accountability partner to exchange specific goals for each assignment and help each other follow through.
