Professional Development Workshops for Artists led by Susan Caraballo

Class/Workshop, Community Event

Join us for a two-part workshop series for artists, writers, and other creatives led by Susan Caraballo. Writing an Effective Artist Statement: This hands-on workshop on how to write an effective and persuasive artist statement, will take participants through the different uses of an artist statement, giving their “elevator pitch,” and creative writing exercises as tools to describe their work. Workshop is limited to 20 participants. Participants are asked to provide a digital version of their current artist statement and bring two hard copies for peer review. Participants are encouraged to bring writing materials or a laptop to the workshop. Demystifying the Art of Proposal Writing: Whether participants are in the midst of a proposal and want feedback or they want to delve into writing proposals, this workshop provides a hands-on approach to the process. Through a combination of writing exercises, discussions, and a mock panel, participants will gain first-hand experience in the grant writing and grant making process. Workshop is limited to 20 participants. Participants are asked to fill out a mock artist fellowship application before the workshop. The application is emailed at the time of registration. The application deadline is a few days prior to the workshop. Applications will be peer reviewed by participants. Participants are encouraged to bring writing materials or a laptop to the workshop.
