Writing an Artist’s Statement

Your Artist’s Statement is a valuable tool to connect your audience to your art – perhaps on a website, or with a gallery, or a special show.

The creative text you’ll write as you craft your Artists’s Statement will also translate easily into social media postings, press releases, and many other formats. This will save you time, effort, and also create a cohesive style that gives your name a “brand.”

During the class, students will 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 we will outline your statement with some easy and fun creative exercises that are sure to bring out your personal style. Everyone’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 different audiences.

And finally, we’ll work towards a polished statement to effectively generate interest in the artist and their work. Helpful marketing hints are interjected
