“Words As Artists Tools” Workshop With Don Scott And Susan Leepergerrard At Buenaventura Gallery

Sometimes artists must paint with words. If you seek to communicate more effectively through your artist’s statement or biography, resume for a grant submission or press release about your exhibit, sign up for the Buenaventura Art Association workshop “Words As Artist Tools.” The workshop will be held at the Buenaventura Gallery.

In the first session on Sunday, Nov. 1, Ventura County Star Copy Editor Don Scott and Museum of Ventura County Director of Marketing Susan Leeper Gerrard will share their experience and advice about writing to increase readers’ interest in your vision and artwork, whether in print or on the Web. In the second session on Nov. 15, artists will receive individual critique of your artist statement, resume/biography and press releases.

The workshop will be in two sessions: Sunday, November 1 at 2:00 pm and Sunday, November 15 at 2:00 pm. Cost is $15 for BAA members, $25 for nonmembers.
