CREATING YOUR “ABOUT” BLURB WITH ROBIN CEMBALEST

Wednesday, September 29, 2021

Every artist needs a paragraph (or two) describing who they are and what they do. How do you condense your identity and practice to 200 words? This class will show you how. Former ARTnews editor and editorial strategist Robin Cembalest will share examples and templates to help you describe who you are and what you do in expressive, accessible language. Class includes presentation and Q&A.
