This intro level course is for those (journalists or not) who are interested in writing about visual arts, and want to gain a better understanding of how to approach it, and to sharpen their writing skills.
Course and assignments will be tailored to writing in English.
Some of what the course will cover includes: the types of visual art and how to approach them differently, journalistic formats and their priorities in writing about art, writing techniques, and terminology.
In addition to 4 sessions held at Cultograph, there will be one day for a gallery visit, to attend an exhibition and discuss it during the sessions.
To make sure each attendee benefits from the course, we will work in small groups of 6 maximum.
Chosen works produced during the course will be published at Cultograph’s website and social media, promoting their authors.
Sessions will be led by Soha Elsirgany, an award-winning artist and art journalist with years of experience in writing about art in various publications.
Dates: Between 24 – 31 July, 2018
