It can be intimidating to get your thoughts down on paper. But writing, just like throwing pots, is a skill that can be learned. The ACC firmly believes that any artist can put together a thoughtful and compelling artist statement. What’s more, we understand how important these statements are when it comes to securing exhibitions, grants, and press opportunities. That’s why we’re giving a talk focused on writing tips and holding coaching sessions, where artists have a chance to work one-on-one with a writing expert, to help attendees of “Claytopia,” NCECA’s annual conference, perfect their artist statements.

Each free half-hour session will pair an artist with an unbiased, experienced editor or curator – including staff from our award-winning magazine, American Craft. Be sure to bring a draft of your statement to the coaching session along with any questions or concerns you may have, whether they be about grammar, clarity, or tone. The talk (“The Write Stuff”) is scheduled for earlier the same day and will provide helpful tips and resources to help you hone your writing skills and improve your confidence.

The talk is open to all “Claytopia” attendees, but space is limited for the coaching sessions. Reserve your spot today on the Eventbrite sign-up page.

We can’t wait to work with you!
