Artist Statements

art-statement-764376As you all know, for the final project in ART 361/461 you will need to have an artist statement.

But…..what is an artist statement? Your artist’s statement can be anything you want it to be, but primarily, it should help a views to understand what you believe to be the most important aspects of your art and the techniques you use to make it. The statement should summarize these things in as few words as possible and not be a lengthy dissertation on your place in the future history of art. A paragraph of three or four sentences should do it. You won’t keep your readers much longer than that.

I hope that helps a bit – but if not, I have attached a file that has some advice for writing an artist statement.
