Polish Your Story event with Adair Heitmann

April 27 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

April 27 is “National Tell A Story Day” and the perfect opportunity for artists to perfect & polish the story of your artistic journey!

Saturday, April 27 from 11:30-1:30pm
With guidance from award-winning educator and artist Adair Heitmann, transform free writing and thoughts about your artwork and creative process into a comprehensive artist statement and description.

Discover how to articulate your process, craftsmanship, and influences succinctly to captivate attention and meet word count requirements.  Bring a piece of artwork or photograph of a selected piece to workshop the writing process.

Following the ‘Craft Your Story’ workshop earlier this month, this session will delve into editing and polishing various written prompts. While it builds on the previous workshop, others will also also benefit from attending.

Reserve space using the form below. $25 per member / $35 for non-members.
