* No class Saturday May 17th
Or is it? Mentor Lyla Rye will give you the help you need to find the words. Writing an effective artist statement can not only help professionally but also enables you to see your art practice with the fresh insight needed to develop it further.
Through a guided process, this 4 week seminar style class will break the task down into a number of steps. Exercises, handouts and examples will give you the tools needed to write articulately about your work. By the end of the 4 classes you will have a one page artist statement that is in sync with your practice.
