There are multiple different times that you’ll have to write about your work.

From grant or residency applications, to exhibition proposals, to simply generating a third-person narrative biography, it can feel daunting!

Through this two-day workshop, students will learn how to codify their process and concepts into text to represent themselves in various contexts. No previous experience required. Students will need to bring a writing tool and paper to both class sessions.
