How It Sounds: Writing for the Practical Artist


How It Sounds: Writing for the Practical Artist

90 minutes

Writing about one’s practice is a difficult feat for even the most seasoned artist. Translating the complex ideas in one’s work onto the written page is a daunting task that requires practice and research. This seminar focuses on the many facet of art writing, using several examples, tips and industry standards for emerging and mid-career artists.

Topics include: artists statements, CVs and covering letters, press releases, formal and informal voice. A key aspect of this seminar is to hone in on the art reading audience. Identifying these audiences helps situate the voice of the artist, clarify their purpose and fine tune the writing process. Using a variety of examples, Pennylane distinguishes use of concise writing versus artspeak and where and when each is appropriate.
