Creating Good Vibes With Your Artist Bio

June 9 @ 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT

Artist Bio Workshop For Creatives Facilitated by Richard Burroughs

Class Dates: Sunday, June 9th 2024

Time: 1:00 – 3:00pm

Venue: The Children’s Art Carnival

Max. Participants: 25

The bio is an important marketing tool and should be carefully crafted to bring the world closer to the artist. It tells the artist’s story, building a connection between the person reading it and the artist. Unfortunately, a clumsily written bio can work against an artist. A journalist, art school, gallerist, or buyer can get bad vibes from a bad bio, so this one-day workshop will show you how to get your vibes right with a bio that works for you.

We will talk about:

  • Choosing/Shooting a bio picture
  • What to include in an artist bio
  • What to avoid when writing a bio
  • When to update your bioAnd other bio-related topics. Expect to be able to write your bio after finishing this workshop.


This event is open to the public. Online registration is required to participate. Suggested donation of $5. (Register with donation)
