I am grateful to The Rhode Island School of Design for inviting me back to teach another writing course in their Continuing Education Department. This class will focus on writing an artist’s bio that effective tells a story.
Course description from the RISD Catalogue: Learn how to share your personal story as an artist in a compelling and accessible way. Through the use of the third-person biographical essay, you'll discover how to develop your backstory to paint a more complete picture of yourself as an artist and as a person, and how to give readers a clear insight into your personal narrative and the inspiration, motivation and nature of your work. By the end of the workshop, you will have developed strategies of approach and a rough outline to write your bio for use in a variety of applications including web and print.
