WTSP 2016 – Presenting Yourself: Send Me Your Headshot, Short Bio, and Artist’s Statement

Venue: 1131 Mission Street

Presenting Yourself: Send Me Your Headshot, Short Bio, and Artist’s Statement

At every stage of an artist’s career, the first request from a curator, producer, or event coordinator is: “Please send me a headshot, bio, and artist’s statement.” Artists who attend this workshop will leave with a fine tuned narrative biography, an artist’s statement, and an opportunity to meet other artists who are developing their artistic practice.
The workshop facilitator will begin with examples of well-written biographies and artist’s statements. Attendees will then be asked to write a short paragraph about themselves and their work that they will share with the group for constructive feedback. The attendees will then be asked to present a short “elevator pitch” about  who they are and their artwork.

In response to the current COVID-19 situation, we require that all persons continue to wear masks at all times when in the Root Division space. For the safety of our students, artists, and extended community, we also require all students to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination (or same-day negative test results) for entry to classes held indoors at Root Division.

You may bring a physical copy of your vaccination card or via digital download through the State of California Digital Vaccine Record Portal here. (You may also provide a negative test result taken before each class session. Please contact us with any questions about the types of test results accepted.)

We ask this as a show of community care and a move towards continued safety while gathering in-person.
