Free Workshop For Artists: Art*iculation

The Art League often hosts free lectures for artists, which are posted on our lecture series and enrichment page. One of January’s three workshops is a guide to writing about your artwork, led by writing coach David Hazard, which promises to be useful and fun.

Art * iculation

A 3-hour free workshop on finding your writing voice… for visual artists

Exhibitions, shows, and galleries — as well as personal websites — require both a clear artist’s statement and a compelling description of your work. As a painter, sculptor, potter, or woodcarver, it’s important to know how to say in words what comes to you by feel and intuition.

David Hazard has coached creative people for 34 years, and will help you to capture the words that so often escape visual artists when asked to articulate why they do what they do. You will learn how to:

  • identify the strong elements of their personal voice… as it emerges in their work

  • understand and connect with their audience

  • create simple and compelling personal statements for promotional and marketing copy

Saturday, January 28, 1 – 4 pm. Please RSVP The Art League at (703) 683-1780. Walk-ins are also welcome.
