Creative Close-Up: Art Tips of the Sharing Kind…

Feb. 27 / 17  Hey again! As most of you know, I like to show people the best in art education, websites, and what not. I found this article from Artsy Shark by guest blogger Adam Eisenstat titled, How to Write a Compelling Artist Statement. It’s worth the read, this may be a great benefit…. cred: adam eisenstat & artsy shark How to Write a Compelling Artist Statement by Artsy Shark guest blogger Adam Eisenstat Why is an artist statement important? An artist statement is a marketing piece designed to make someone interested in your work. A good artist statement helps make an artist and his/her work more compelling.

I’ve written materials for many artists working in a wide variety of styles and genres. One artist statement I did illustrates particularly well how this …
