Artists are often asked to tell the story of their art and why it matters. Talking and writing about ourselves is a challenging but vital skill for artists, whether our goal is to sell online, via public art, street fairs or any level of gallery representation. This presentation aims to put you on a path toward becoming comfortable sharing your story, whether in a personal or online conversation, in an artist statement, bio or resume, or in conversation with peers, other professionals or most importantly, with customers and community members.

Thank you for an amazing Tacoma Studio Tour!
Thank you to the many artists who generously opened their working studios to the public last weekend for the Tacoma Studio Tour. After a two-year hiatus, we were thrilled to be back out and visiting with some of the many artists who call Tacoma home. And thanks to all of you for showing up and connecting with our community around a shared love of the arts.
