As artists are more and more required to articulate the underpinning of their work, writing has become an essential aspect. This workshop will consider writing as a way of exploration, beyond explaining one’s work.
Over three sessions, the workshop will look at the possibilities of how reflective writing can help you explore new perspectives of what it is you do as an artist. Through presentations, reading of artists’ writings, discussions, and group feedback sessions, it will aim to give you the inspiration, the confidence and the tools to start writing, and to further use this material for various purposes, be it inspirational, promotional, or conceptual.
Over the 6-week period, you will be invited to engage with reflective writing in the form of a diary. You will also look at other artists’ writings as well as responding to each other’s in order to widen the perspectives of the approach.
The workshop is open to all visual artists interested in further understanding their practice through the method of reflective writing. Those new to writing are particularly welcome.
