VIRTUAL WORKSHOP
Writing an Artist Statement

Jun 21 - 25, 2021

Monday, Wednesday & Friday, 9-11:30AM MST

Concept

Join artist and educator Lisa Kereszi in a three-day workshop to help you write an artist statement that sounds like you, and not like someone else’s idea of who you are. We will do short writing prompts together aimed at helping you tap into your visual memories and develop a voice that helps the viewer understand what it is you are trying to share with your photographs. Be prepared to share your writing with the group, as well as have a conversation one-on-one with the instructor. By the end of the week, each participant should have at least a solid first draft of a written piece about their own work that can be adapted for various uses, such as grant-writing, portfolio reviews and exhibition submissions.

Additional Information: This virtual class meets Monday, Wednesday, Friday (June 21, 23 and 25) from 9-11:30AM with one additional 30-minute individual session via Zoom Video Conferencing software (download free from Zoom.com). An Anderson Ranch staff member co-teaches the class and coordinates the online platform. Further details will be emailed to registrants.
