Write Your Art Out
Have you ever wanted to be an art reviewer? In this 4-week program, learn the basics of reviewing a visual art exhibition and how to find your own voice as an art writer. With the guidance of writers from DARIA: Denver Art Review, Inquiry, and Analysis, you’ll have the opportunity to work both one-on-one and in small groups to explore how to approach visual art as a writer, the basics of writing an exhibition review, workshopping your art writing, and polishing your work. At the end of the program, you’ll have a finished review you can submit to DARIA or other publications. Pieces submitted to DARIA will compete for publication on the DARIA site dariamag.com.
