ATHICA is pleased to announce its inaugural Grass Roots Art Writing Program this fall: a series of four half-day workshops spread over the months of October and November that will cover the basics of critical art writing, editing strategies, and artist statement development. Inspired by BURNAWAY's Art Writing Incubator, our aim is to support our art community and to inspire critical writing in the Athens region.
Instructors will include artist and writer Maggie Davis, writer and former ArtsATL Editor Laura Relyea, and Piedmont College professor and museum director Rebecca Brantley.
Registration will open September 7, 2019 and is open until filled with a maximum of 12 attendees per session.
A registration fee of $10 per session goes to cover expenses. All materials will be provided. Any attendee who completes all four sessions will receive a certificate of completion and a $25 honorarium for completion of the program.
Each session will begin at 10:00 AM and will conclude at 2:00 PM, with a working lunch break on site. Participants are asked not to leave to get lunch. Participants have the option to order lunch from Pulaski Heights BBQ through ATHICA or to bring lunch from home. Chips and drinks will be provided to all.
Participants will hone critical thinking skills, engage in discussions about the history and current status of critical art writing, participate in peer-editing, and will build a small writing portfolio.
