VA18 Virtual: Writing Your Artist Statement

****REGISTRATION FOR THIS COURSE HAS CLOSED***

Artists are trained to make objects and are then expected to successfully use words to articulate their process.  This is a tall order because many of us don’t think through words, have never learned to write narratives of our observations or don’t really know personally what we’re making in the first place!  This course is for students and artists wishing to discover what they are actually accomplishing in their studios and write simply and clearly to share those insights with others.  The sessions will act like a gradual layering process of discovery and share group feedback.  This process will also help us understand “IF” …which is the BIG “IF”… we are accomplishing our desired goals. This class includes live Zoom sessions and studio hours with the instructor.

“This is the most difficult workshop I’ve ever taken and has given me the self-respect I never knew I needed” – Former Student.

*Virtual Course Policy: Students registered for virtual courses are expected to conduct themselves as if participating in an on-site Bemis course. As a virtual course registrant, Bemis asks that you please be aware of your surroundings during virtual class sessions. Ensure your Zoom camera background is simple and clear of any foot traffic, including family members moving in and out of view, bright backlighting, or anything else that would be distracting to fellow students and the instructor. If need be, you can choose to turn off your camera in Zoom and turn it back on when you’re ready.
