artist statement
Artist Statement
  • Who you are, why you do what you do
    • Talk about yourself, not other artists
    • Mention your medium, genre, your chosen subjects/themes
    • Be concise
      • under ½ page is best
work samples
Work Samples
  • This is the ONLY impression the Board or Review panel will have of your work
    • Be sure your files are readable
    • Invest in acquiring high-quality samples
goals and outcomes
Goals and Outcomes
  • Know the difference
    • Goals- establish specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and time-targeted objectives.
    • A goal can be long-term or short-term.
    • Outcomes- the end result
  • Does your proposal align with your goals and interests as an artist?
  • Does it align with the mission of your funder?

examples of goals
Examples of Goals
  • To be proficient in throwing off the hump for at least four different forms by the end of three months.
  • Students will experience the creative process and exhibit a creative approach to problem-solving.
  • Shed some of the technical difficulties of playing the instrument that come with not being in a regular practice and performance routine
  • Take fourteen private lessons with the Associate Principal Oboist of the Minnesota Orchestra between May 2012 and January 2013
goal measurement
Goal Measurement
  • Match your evaluation methods with your goals

Methods of Evaluation:

  • Recording or photographing rehearsals, tracking hours spent writing or painting, formal or informal critiques from mentors and other artists
    • Two basic forms of Assessment
      • Qualitative
        • Results of skills learned, improved confidence
      • Quantitative
        • Things that can be counted: number of paintings, performances
examples of outcomes
Examples of Outcomes
  • I have grown as an artist and now give more polished, meaningful performances
  • I know a method of bookbinding more traditional than those with which I was familiar
  • Ifeel a stronger connection with artists outside my chosen genre or medium.
  • I have the technical skills to weave saplings to create an environmental art work as stable as a building and fluid as a drawing.
demonstrating need
Demonstrating Need
  • State need in terms of resources, not finances
    • Time is the primary element I am lacking in my studio practice.
    • I am only able to fire 15 cubic feet of work at a time,this capacity limits my production abilities
    • I have strong technical painting abilities, but my knowledge of color theory is weak
  • Check your math
  • Be sure numbers are consistent throughout the application
  • Show the method of calculation
  • Check guidelines for expenses that are/are not eligible
  • Call or email with questions

Awarding Funds

  • Applicants with the highest rankings are awarded until funds are exhausted for that grant round.
  • CMAB directors make the final decisions
  • An applicant must score at least a 3.0 in order to be considered for funding

Request a Draft Review!

* CMAB staff will review and make suggestions to help strengthen your application.

* Draft review requests can be made via email: two weeks or more before the grant deadline
