Thursday, June 16, 6-8 pm – Writing an Effective Artist’s Statement (VMFA) - CANCELED

The daunting challenge of writing an artist’s statement can cause even the most accomplished artist to lose confidence. How long should it be? What should it include? Should it be creative or just state the facts? This workshop helps visual artists craft statements about their work that are effective and express their individual personalities. Participants learn how to critique their current statements, how to avoid common pitfalls, how to determine the requirements of particular tasks — from exhibition statements to grant applications, how to select and manipulate words to create a lively sense of who they are, and how to compose a general statement easily adapted for different purposes. Above all, this workshop takes the fear out of writing and replaces it with self-assurance and fun.

This program has been organized by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and is supported, in part, by the Paul Mellon Endowment and the Jean Stafford Camp Memorial Fund.
