Online Learning Class via Zoom

If you want your work to circulate in a fine art context, it is crucial to find a language for your art. Doing this enables you to clarify and articulate your artistic vision.

As a curator and writer, Camilla Brown has over 25 years of experience working with photographers and helping them find language the bests reflects their art. In this workshop, we will work to develop 150 words that summarizes your photographic practice – an “elevator pitch” of sorts. This short and concise summary will be extremely useful when applying for opportunities and publicizing your work. Camilla will share examples and provide tips to enable you to write and overcome any confidence issues. In between class sessions, students will be encouraged to send Camilla their text for critique and editing. By the end of the course, students will have a new statement to circulate in the art world.

Participants should bring a digital portfolio of their and a PDF of their current artist statement (if applicable).

This course is strictly limited to 12 students.
