Event Information

Artist statements are hard to write, but they’re an important tool for artists working in any discipline. In this workshop, led by author Nicole Hardy, you’ll look at examples of 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. 

Topics Covered:
- Artist statement essentials
- Artist statement examples
- How to explain your work and creative aspirations in writing

- Strong artist statement to use for presenting your work
