Write Your Best Artist Statement!

Robert W. Hoffert Learning Center: Thursday, November 9 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Calling all artists: emerging or established, mid-career or hobbyist! Stumped by your artist statement? Don’t know where to start, what to say, or how long it should be? Have an existing statement that feels out of date or doesn’t accurately represent your work? Discover answers to these questions and more at Writing Your Artist Statement, an interactive workshop led by Madeleine Boyson, arts writer and editor (and GAMA’s communications coordinator!).

Join us Thursday, November 9 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. for this community workshop on writing about your work in your own voice.

Bring an existing statement or start from scratch! Open to the public and the CSU community.

Register via Eventbrite (spots are limited!)
