Find writing proposals and artist statements more protracted than pulling teeth? This introductory course will arm you with simple tools for effective writing as a professional artist. No longer will you be confused about how complex your writing should be, what tone it should use, or which language styles to use. Learn how to cut through the noise so that your art and ideas engage your audience. Gina Fairley will walk you through a broad range of contexts and practical situations to ensure that your writing has clarity and clout.
