How do you get your students to write an artists statement? One way is to use this worksheet. It breaks down the tasks into three sections: what they have made and with what materials, the process they have been through and where they got their inspiration from.
If students write a sentence for each they should have a short artist statement suitable for displaying next to an artwork. More able students will, of course, write more.
Also included is a sheet with three good examples to show your students.
There are lots of art literacy resources on The Arty Teacher.

I set up The Arty Teacher because I have a passion for my subject that I want to share with other art teachers around the world.
I have been a high school art teacher for over 20 years, so I understand what it’s like to be in front of a class of students, often with very different abilities and attitudes.
I wanted to develop resources that would help teachers to bring out the best in every student in every class. I also wanted to free-up staff from time-consuming lesson preparation to let them focus instead on delivering exciting, motivating, dynamic lessons, supported by excellent resources.
