Re: How do I write a CV?

It would be the same as for a resume. A CV is a resume of your art career, it is a listing of shows, galleries, competitions, schooling in arts, publications. You would gather your information under various headings. At the top portion of the page, you might write a brief bio of your artistic career.

If you have done only a few things, your CV will be short and sweet.

Re: How do I write a CV?

To begin, prepare a list of your key competencies and skills that your employer will be looking for. Be analytical about yourself and identify your main selling points that differentiate yourself from competitors. The most common content to be included.First impressions are very important! Each section needs to be headed clearly so that it is well presented, orderly and pleasing to look at, to avoid any discouragement to read on. Your skills, experience and achievements must flow in a logical manner detailing all key point A good idea is to print off your final copy and look at it, getting a second opinion on its content and presentation. To see what looks best you should experiment with different formats as it may take several different drafts to get to the final selected one. Check that your personal details are all correct, your spelling, punctuation and grammar are accurate, the presentation is pleasing to the eye, you have identified your main selling points and you have avoided any repetitions.
