This one-day introduction to art writing allows you to articulate the unique nature of your own photographic practice. It is ideal for those who are building a website or submitting applications for grants, residencies, colleges, or graduate schools, and may be uncomfortable writing about their work. Through in-class exercises, students will use myriad writing strategies and techniques to craft a creatively and clearly written statement, and leave with that statement in hand.
