March Focus: Writing About Black Art Through a Feminist Lens

On Zoom. Registration is required.

Workshops are free. All are welcome.

This month, three “Writing About Black Art” workshops (March 5, 12, and 19) will explore writing about Black art from a feminist perspective.

Through class lectures, Zoom discussion groups, and homework exercises, participants will learn about selected African American artists from different perspectives and produce a 350-word essay concentrating on one work of art. Time will also be devoted to peer reviews of essay drafts in Zoom discussion groups. These workshops are designed to develop marketable skills as a freelance writer writing about Black art and artists.
