Part 1: Artist Statement & Bio
Tuesday, June 12, 7pm-9pm

The Artist Statement is one of the most important documents that an artist creates, but it is also one of the most difficult documents to write and is often confused with the artist bio. In this workshop you will learn why your statement and bio are so important and what makes a strong artist statement and bio. You will have the opportunity to workshop your statements and bios with other workshop participants.

Part 2: Artist Resume and CV
Tuesday, June 26, 7pm-9pm

You send your resume or CV out to a lot of people. The artist resume is different from most traditional resumes. Learn strategies for organizing your information, including what to include or not include.

Part 3: Artist Website

The artist website is an important part of your online presence, but it is often neglected. Learn what makes a strong artist website that is easy for people to find and navigate.
