    This is different from your longer artist statement . An artist objective is just one sentence or short phrase in length and appears at the top of the résumé and is specifically intended to tell someone what kind of art/design work you are looking for or to do. (examples might include: “To study the California coastline as a landscaper painter.” or, “To develop sustainable design solutions as a package designer.” etc.)
