  • overview

    Writespace lives in an ecosystem of Art--literally! Our home in Silver Street Studios means that every day we breathe the very air of line, color, motion, texture, and technique. In this three-hour workshop, we will make use of our proximity to so many thriving examples of visual art to practice another art of our own — the critical art essay. We’ll start by defining what this exciting genre of writing can mean, though we’ll quickly sense the many liberties we may take. Next, we’ll draft a piece about a particular work on display in the studios. Finally, We’ll conclude by discussing revision strategies and opportunities for publication. (Hint: there are many!)
