Writing a short article alongside a piece of your work adds a powerful dimension to it that cannot be achieved by viewing alone, and yet so few artists do this. Miles will show you how to write to induce an emotional response that is inspiring and memorable.
He will be talking about the three key commentaries, that when combined, draw the viewer into your professional life, your current project, and expand the meaning and inspiration behind each piece, taking them that much closer to making a purchase and becoming a fan. With just a few rules, you can overcome this intimidating task.
