Event Information

*Presented in partnership with Spark Central.

Artist statements and resumes are hard to write, but they are an important way of explaining who you are as an artist. In this workshop, led by artist and designer Ginelle Hustrulid, you’ll look at examples of successful artist statements and resumes from artists of all disciplines and then revise your own. You’ll leave with solid drafts of a statement and resume to use when applying for grants and residencies and as part of your website or portfolio.

*This workshop is open to artists of all disciplines and is ideal for artists writing or updating their artist statement and resume for their portfolio and website and to apply for grants, residencies, and other opportunities.

Need-based, Filipinx, and Latinx scholarships are available by request. Email Zach Frimmel for any questions regarding scholarships, member codes, or accessibility.
