Writing Seminars for Artists
Tearing your hair out over writing your artist statement?
The Berkshire Cultural Resource Center at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts has announced the latest round of workshops from its on-going Tricks of the Trade series, a set of classes entitled “Writing: How do artists write about their work?”
These interactive sessions will be led by writer/editor Seth Rogovoy and artist Meryl Joseph. Facilitated by Kidspace Director and MCLA Professor Laura Thompson, the seminars will examine artist statements to understand what connects an audience most to the artwork. Attendees will then use these techniques to write their own statements.
All sessions begin at 6:30 p.m. Class locations are:
- Tuesday, January 12th, 6:30 p.m.: MAYA III, North Adams
- Wednesday, January 13th, 6:30 p.m.: Ferrin Gallery, Pittsfield
- Thursday, January 14th, 6:30 p.m.: IS183 Art School, Stockbridge
The workshops are free, but pre-registration is required; call 413-663-5253 to register.
(Editor’s Tip: If you’re too lazy to attend the workshop, or you just enjoy baffling folks,
you can try using the fill-in-the-blanks Market-o-Matic to write your artist statement.)
