Dear Ms. Natalie Griffin,
It takes a special type of person to be an Art Critic and I have what it takes, which is why I am applying for this position now available with Rhode Island School of Design.
I have 4 years experience working as an art critic for a very popular magazine and for the city’s largest newspaper. I have a bachelor’s degree in Art and an extensive knowledge of art history. Before I became an Art Critic, I worked as a professor at Pueblo Community College university where I have an outstanding reputation for being one of the best in my field.
I have the experience, training and ability to interpret and evaluate art pieces to determine their worth. My excellent verbal and interpersonal skills make it easy to conduct interviews and connect with the public. I display courtesy and professionalism at all times and under all circumstances, even when some of the things I have to say is not what people may want to hear.
I have the writing skills needed to explain my assessments in my reports in a vivid and interesting manner that entices the viewer to read more. I have worked closely with editors in the past to ensure my reports meet their standards, word count, etc.
I can travel to art shows, exhibits and galleries for major presentations or new openings to interpret the pieces and to provide a professional and honest in-depth report on what they have to offer.
You can reach me by calling (555)-555-5555 and I hope that you will consider me as a candidate for this position.
