Artists, we’ll save time during this process if you read my book, ART-WRITE, and complete some of the exercises before you send me your draft.

Teaching  I’ve taught my ART-Write workshop in Portland, Eugene, Seattle, Denver, and San Francisco. Workshop Description This respectful and fun workshop is useful for any artist who needs to produce a statement, update their statement, or write in order to approach new opportunities in the arts. For today’s working artist, writing is essential for sustaining a career. Self-promotion relies on the written word, yet finding the right words to describe your work may be a stumbling block.

Amorose’s Art-Write Workshop will provide crystal clear direction on how to write the artist statement and bio, plus guidance on writing for websites, proposals, press releases and cover letters. The curriculum, based on Vicki’s popular book, Art-Write: The Writing Guide for Visual Artists, includes helpful prompts, definitions and techniques. Lively peer exchange and instant feedback from Vicki brings clarity and insight.
