March 10th, Rosendale, NY: WSW Workshop “How to Craft an Artist’s Statement”

Women’s Studio Workshop is offering a workshop:
How to Craft an Artist’s Statement

Thursday, March 10, 2011, 6:00 pm – 7:20 pm
Fee: $10

“Authentic communication about ones’ artwork is a powerful tool for creative growth as well as for business success. The effectiveness of a strong artist statement stems from the authority with which it is written, but often artists are completely at a loss when it comes to writing about their work.  Through intensive writing exercises and one-on-one consultations, this evening will demystify the process, and give participants the ingredients needed to compose an artist statement that is a moving testament to their creativity.”
*Please bring your existing artist’s statement, if you have one.*

20 minute one-on-one session for: artist statement, bio, portfolio, or grant proposals
7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Fee: $25

Fee for both workshop and consultation: $30

Participate from a distance! Consultations are also available via phone.  Artists should email text or materials prior to consultation.
