Writing for the visual arts
Written in a reader-friendly style interlaced with vivid examples, this how-to writing manual for visual artists details a comprehensive and concise methodology for the full spectrum of writing tasks they will encounter in both the academic and professional worlds--academic research papers, resumes, letters of application, manifestos, press releases, and grants. It emphasizes that professionals' art, in itself, will not always speak for them, and that they must, therefore, learn to articulate their concepts and ideas, and to argue for, and earn, their place in the world of art. Abundant examples (of stages of document development and complete documents) represent amateur as well as professional sources and an exceptionally full spectrum of visual art--painting, sculpting, collage, drawing, graphic arts, architecture, film, and theater.How to Write Academic Art Papers. How to Write about Your Art. How to Revise and Peer Review. How to Write a Resume. How to Write an Application Cover Letter. How to Write a Manifesto. How to Write Press Releases. How to Write Grants and Proposals.For visual artists of all kinds.
