Write Your Artist Statement Using Mind Mapping


DATE/TIME: Monday, January 23 @ 10:30am
TUITION: $20 members / $23 future members

In this two-hour workshop taught by M. Kathleen Warren, artists will explore writing an artist statement about their work using a more visual approach: mind mapping. Mind mapping is especially useful to capture thoughts, see relationships, discover new perceptions, even to begin organizing ideas and words before the artist starts to write sentences. We’ll discuss topics to include in your artist statement such as descriptions and techniques then add more abstract ideas like the artist’s creative process, story of the work, and personal insights. The techniques in this workshop are “analog” that is, using paper and pen rather than computer or software, and this holistic approach tends to generate “flow” for those who are more visual. Each student should bring a photograph or image of one of their art pieces or of a short series of pieces for the statement. Those who want to use color in their mind maps should also bring colored pens.
