When I was a kid, there was this thing called “free art.” You could get the teachers to give you permission to draw or paint or sculpt something. And then you could hang it on the wall and everyone would admire it.
Thing is, if you wanted to sell your free art, that was a different story. The school would get upset about that and take your art down.
But these days if you try selling something (not counting school projects) you get in trouble with the law. And even if you are just giving it away, people will tell you that they don’t need any of your free art.
Don’t worry though! There’s still a solution! All you need is a blog where you post pictures of your free art and then people can come look at them whenever they want to!
And then when people comment on your free art, it will feel like praise even though technically it’s criticism. Because people don’t usually say things like “Your drawing of an elephant is rather poorly proportioned” unless they really like what they’re looking at.
So I have decided to start such a blog. It’s called the Art of Communication because I think communication is important and I want to help others be better at it. But
This blog is created by a group of communication experts who want to share their thoughts, ideas and knowledge to help you improve your communication skills.
It is a resource for anyone interested in learning more about how people communicate. It will provide you with insights on what is happening in today’s changing workplace and how that affects business and personal communication. It will give you practical advice on how to communicate at work, at home and in the community.
Numéro uno: The future of communication
This blog will be about communication, personality and tje art of expressing your feelings, sharing ideas, thoughts and anything else you wish to share. It’s not just another social networking site but a place where you can post whatever you want without limits giving full freedom to express yourself in any way you would like. It is also a place where all your thoughts and ideas can be shared with other people who will gladly comment and give their opinion on what you have written, so that their are no boundaries in this matter.

The purpose of this blog is to provide you with ways to improve your communication skills. I will do so by writing articles that are organized in different categories. This allows me to identify a specific topic and write about it more thoroughly.
This blog is written in an easy-to-understand way with an emphasis on practicality. I will never use jargon such as “utilize” or “multitasking” in any of my posts because they are not only impractical, but also because they simply do not fit the tone of the blog.

**The Language of Art: The Element of Style is a delightful, witty and well-written book. It is one of those books that would make you look back at the books you have read so far and realize most of them are trash.
The book encompasses ten chapters. The first chapter provides us with the history of art and its fundamental elements. The second chapter deals with the language of art, the third one focuses on how great works are made, the fourth chapter talks about style in writing, the fifth chapter describes how to make an effective presentation, how to write better proposals, and how to learn from criticism. The sixth chapter gives us rules for editing your own work; how to revise; how to get better by reading good writers; and how to make a good first impression. The seventh chapter talks about handling criticism, dealing with rejection and developing self-confidence. The eighth chapter is about making great conversation which is one of my favorite chapters in this book as it emphasizes on being a good listener while speaking. And finally in the ninth chapter we find out why art is important. These chapters are followed by the last one – ten – which is the appendix where we find out what some famous writers have said about writing.
The author makes use of examples from different
“I want to be an artist, but I don’t want to starve.”
It’s a common dilemma, and there are plenty of answers out there.
You could get a job as a graphic designer at an advertising agency. You could teach art at a university. You could become a commercial artist, doing logos and posters for corporate clients. You could go into business for yourself, where you can charge whatever you can get from whatever clients you can convince to hire you. Or you could do what I did. For the last twelve years I’ve been working as an artist for hire. I work for individuals, businesses and nonprofit organizations, with or without pay, depending upon their needs and my schedule.
I have no formal education in art or design. I have no degrees in anything. But I have been able to earn my living doing art by trading my skills and services for other people’s money in all kinds of circumstances—for money from individual collectors, from companies and organizations on commission, from groups of people who got together to support my art on Kickstarter, from social service agencies that wanted something cheerful to hang on their walls—and by trading it directly for products and services that are useful to me: food and drink at restaurants; beer when I’m thirsty;
