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.

LIZ SALES is a photo-based artist, art-writer, and educator. She was an editor at Conveyor Magazine and has frequently published writing in Foam Magazine. She has been a faculty member at the City University of New York and the University of Connecticut and the International Center of Photography and is the author of the book I Write Artist Statements.
