ArtSpeak is For You...


Have you ever wondered just how long you should look at an artwork?

Are you embarrassed or nervous if someone asks you about your art?

Walk away from this book with concrete strategies you can use to not only speak confidently about your own art, but confidently interpret and share your opinions about all art you choose to talk about.

While many artists wish to hide away in their studio making art, in order to grow an audience, to show or to sell, you have to participate in the sharing and discussion of your art.

Artspeak outlines two strategies you can use to interpret art and then digs into the feedback process. “Critique” sounds like a scary word (and it can be when used in the wrong way.) Artspeak will show you how to use critique experiences to help confidently express your ideas, and even improve your art.

This guide is filled with information, support and artwork to help you understand how to talk about art. It explains each of the different artist building blocks used to make (and talk) about art. The book also includes examples of art being interpreted to help you apply these concepts. You’ll have my help and the help of several guest artists who have joined me for this valuable conversation.

Start feeling confident to talk about your art today.

In ArtSpeak, you learn the building blocks that artists use to create their art and how to use them to reflect on and improve the artwork you create.

What Readers Say…

Artspeak taught me how to look at art pieces objectively. I can now hold my own in a conversation about art as I have the tools provided in the book. I feel as if knowing how to analyze my own art makes me feel as if it is really mine..not some magically produced piece! As if I can now give myself credit for producing it and being a part of it.

Carrie, I just want to say you are so awesome for all that you share for artists! My heart is full of love and appreciation for you.

For me the WIN is finding a community of artists interested in growth. I am celebrating the confidence from the positive feedback and the growth from hearing different perspectives. Since I am self/online-taught, I crave that constructive critique for encouragement.
