Writing the Artist Statement

A well-crafted artist statement is essential to reach the audiences you desire for your artwork, whether you’re applying to a residency, participating in a show, or seeking a teaching job.

Winding Roads Art Tour and Driftless Writing Center are teaming up to offer a 4-hour workshop to help you draft a compelling artist statement that gets to the heart of what you do and why you do it.

Writing instructors Jennifer Morales and Franciszka Voeltz will lead artists through a series of exercises designed to draw out key insights about what drives you to create. You will leave the workshop with an artist statement that will help potential customers, curators, art critics, and other audiences truly grasp the meaning and purpose of your work.


Instructors: Jennifer Morales and Franciszka Voeltz

When: Saturday, February 22, 2020 - 9:00am-1:00pm

Where: Just outside of Viroqua. Exact address will be shared upon registration

Cost: $50 ($25 with Winding Roads Art Tour scholarship)

Cancellation Policy

DWC Cancellations


In case of inclement weather, DWC will follow the Viroqua Public School district’s cancellation notices. If the Viroqua Public School district cancels classes for the day, DWC will cancel any program scheduled for that day. If the Viroqua Public School district announces a two-hour delay, a DWC program scheduled for that evening may still be held, subject to the host’s determination. For programs scheduled on weekends, the DWC program host will decide and notify enrolled students no later than 8 a.m. on the day of the program.

Extenuating Circumstances

DWC will make every attempt to hold a scheduled program but reserves the right to cancel a program for any reason (e.g., illness, family emergency, or insufficient enrollment). 


DWC will notify enrolled students via email and post a notice on social media or its Web site as soon as a cancellation decision is made. 


DWC will make every attempt to reschedule a canceled program. Information about the rescheduled program will be sent to enrolled students via email and announced on social media or DWC’s Web site.


If DWC cancels a program and it is not rescheduled, DWC will issue full refunds for students’ pre-paid program fees. If a student cannot attend on a rescheduled date, DWC will refund that student’s pre-paid program fee. DWC cannot be responsible for travel, lodging, or other costs prospective students incur.

Student Cancellations

DWC expects a student enrolled in a program to notify us as soon as s/he knows s/he cannot attend. DWC will refund 100% of pre-paid program fees until five days before the program begins. For student cancellations occurring between one and five days before the program begins, the DWC program host and DWC board will determine whether or to what extent a student’s pre-paid program fee may be refunded. No pre-paid fees will be refunded within 24 hours of the program’s start or after a program starts.
