Over 3 meetings, this workshop will guide you from start to finish in writing an artist statement which can be used for applications to exhibitions, residencies, grants or to approach a gallery. We begin with guidelines and examples of artists’ statements. Handouts will break the writing down into manageable components. Between meetings, you will have time to write and then refine your statement. Through hands-on exercises and feedback from a range of people you will enhance your ability to write about your work.
Grow your business through teaching what you love
If you’re creative, you probably think a lot about how to earn more money from your talents. At some point, you’ve probably also thought about teaching others what you know. After all, there is no shortage of examples of people making money from their workshops, right? How, exactly, do they do it? This workshop is designed for creative people interested in learning how to package their skills and talents into their own marketable workshops. Whether you are aiming to sell your workshop to corporations, schools or the public, you’ll spend the day exploring how to move from idea, through development, to delivery of a workshop that fits into your overall business strategy.
