As an artist, you are required to write about your work for press releases, marketing purposes and for proposals or applications. Conveying concise information in a well-written artist’s statement, biography and CV will assist people in gaining an understanding of your practice.
This is a one hour introductory session. Joanne will offer strategic advice on preparing artists’ statements and CVs. She will assist you to develop appropriate and clear language to describe your work in a way that makes it engaging, personal and accessible to most readers.
