Arts Fort Worth is proud to partner with Artes de la Rosa and Near Southside Arts to bring back Art Aid! Together, these three organizations are offering opportunities for artists, creatives, and arts nonprofits to explore and grow their professional practice and sustain a living in the arts. 

Formerly a full-day event, the new iteration of Art Aid is a monthly series of demonstrations and seminars geared towards artists, art nonprofits, and other creative professionals, highlighting the diverse support services available in our community. Taking place every first Tuesday of the month, each session will feature organizations and professionals who will share their expertise and help you navigate the business of making art.

The Fundamentals of Writing for Your Art Practice

Tuesday, June 14 at 5:30 p.m.

Fort Worth Community Arts Center

1300 Gendy St, Fort Worth TX 76107

Does writing an artist statement, exhibition proposal, or CV feel daunting? Are you unsure where to start or what to include? Art Aid is here for you! We've heard time and time again that artists and creatives feel overwhelmed when it is time to put pen to paper (or cursor to screen) and intuitive actions now need a black and white explanation. Three professionals will host a panel discussion and walk you through the nuts and bolts of writing for your professional practice and what curators, jurors, and audiences are looking for.

Tickets are $6 per person. Light refreshments will be available. Find free parking on properties around the Arts Center. If the ticket price is a barrier to your attendance, or if you have any other questions, please reach out to us at talkto@artsfortworth.org
