Description

Whether you’re an artist, adviser, publicist, or auction-house specialist, this class provides the tools to write about art for a wide global audience.

Using examples from press releases, web copy, and social media, former ARTnews editor Robin Cembalest will break down the elements of good art writing. She’ll share tactics on how to structure a text, to describe objects and exhibitions, and to explain context and meaning without resorting to “artspeak.”

At a time when writing is an essential part of every art worker’s portfolio, this class empowers you to improve your prose across all communications platforms.

Class includes presentation, Q&A, and workshopping. Bring your writing samples for one-on-one feedback.
