Artists! How to Write About Your Art

Special Treat: We'll have guest facilitator and author of "Art-Write: The Writing Guide for Visual Artists", Vicki Krohn Amorose here to offer this workshop for us!

Is describing your artwork a necessary task on your To-Do List? Do you need guidance and a little push? For today's working artist, words have never been more important for gaining attention, connections and opportunities. Maybe your career has developed, but your promotional writing or artist statement has not. Or maybe you’re mystified by the task and don’t know where to begin. Let’s start here. This 2-hour interactive and encouraging class is based on the book "Art-Write: The Writing Guide for Visual Artists" and led by the author.

$25 tuition includes a copy of the "Art-Write" book. If you bring your own copy of the book, tuition is $15. Please bring cash and a notebook or pad on Sept 15th.

Here's a personal note from Vicki:
Hello, my name is Vicki Krohn Amorose and I wrote a book called "Art-Write: The Writing Guide for Visual Artists". I'll be visiting Seattle to teach my art-writing workshop at a conference. I love teaching this empowering information for artists, and Susan Lee-Pullen has graciously invited me to present the workshop to your group. Please visit my website to learn more http://www.artwritebook.com. I look forward to meeting you!

Space is limited--I'm also listing this event through the Women's Creativity Meetup so grab your space now.

    A lot of great prompts and ideas to use as a toolkit when writing about art. Rather than shooting blindly from the hip, I really feel like I came home with a toolkit that will help me in my current and future endeavors. I gave the space three stars instead of four because it was cold in there and I wasn't prepared. I think artists will really benefit from this book :)

    Hello from Eugene, OR!
    I see we have several spots left for my art-writing workshop on Sunday Sept 15. I know how it is. Writing about your art is challenging. You'd rather do…whatever.

    A small amount of well-crafted writing goes a long way toward sustaining a life in the arts. Especially for today's artist, writing connects you to audience. And it makes you think more deeply about your process.

    I promise you will leave this class with essential tools.
    Look here on Amazon to peek inside the book.

    Hope to meet you soon!
