Artist’s Biography and Statement

Colleen Michaels, Director of the Writing Studio
Location: Montserrat Gallery, 23 Essex St.

Oftentimes, before someone sees your work or meets you in person, an introduction based only in written words has already taken place. Your artist biography and statement can help your audience to enter into your work and help you to think clearly about your development. This workshop will focus on the words to describe the what, why, and how of artists and their work.

Please bring your Biography and/or Statement to work on.

Please bring your Resume to work on.
