Nanaimo artists learn to write their bio

Writing an artist’s biography is key to attracting media interest and audience members.

Nanaimo Arts Council offers an hour-long workshop to teach the essential elements of biography, such as length and what information to include.

Leading the workshop is Penny Maday, an artist and owner of Island Girl Art Studio. She teaches at Nanaimo Art Gallery as well as her own studio, and is also a member of the Federation of Canadian Artists.

The workshop is June 23, 10:30-11:30 a.m. at the arts council gallery in Nanaimo North Town Centre. Admission is $10; free for members.

To register, please call 250-729-3947 or e-mail admin@nanaimoartscouncil.ca.
