Programme Synopsis As a student, writing about art seems like a daunting task! Often we might run into situations where we need or want to write about art but are not sure where or how to begin. This workshop explores art writing as a hands-approach, focusing on the key writing formats for art students in school. Students will learn about basic structures in writing art with fun activities and templates. This will be followed by a deep dive into specialised techniques such as visual analysis and research. Throughout this entire workshop, students will be writing in short-form through step-by-step templates and will also receive several rounds of facilitator feedback. They will be able to delve deep into writing compelling exhibition reviews, essay and artist statement. Putting themselves in the shoes of an art writer, students will also consider writing for an audience, taking into account accessibility, vocabulary and detail.
