Many aspects of an artist’s career involve professional documentation and written materials, be they for proposals to galleries or grantors, sales, and presenting one’s work to the public online. This workshop will introduce best practices for the artist’s professional portfolio, including the artist resume, biography, statement, and artwork documentation. Participants will be guided through determining which approach is best suited to their needs, and will consider samples to leave better equipped to refine their own materials.
