Artist statements are hard to write, but they’re an important tool for artists working in any discipline. In this workshop, led by Artist Trust program manager Lydia Boss, you’ll learn the basics of writing successful artist statements and create your own. By the end of the workshop, you’ll have a solid statement to use for grant, residency, or fellowship applications, on your website, and/or in your portfolio.
