These are the 5 Arts of Effective Communication!

There are 5 things that deserve scrutiny so that communication becomes effective.

I call it the art of communication for these five things. Why? Because, in essence, communicating is an art, not just a theory.

When communication is practiced in the field, it needs art, it needs style. Let’s take a closer look at these five arts of communication.

How Witches Cast Their Spell on Art History

Primbondh/ December 6, 2022/ history of arts

Wright Barker, “Circe” (1889) (image courtesy Bradford Museum and Galleries)

At the intersection of spooky season and global feminism, we have witches. The term “witch” is a handy one, historically applied by the patriarchy to justify the punishment of basically any woman who thwarts the dictates of conventional society and gender relations, but has also been characterized in myth and art for centuries. With Halloween just weeks away, join us in a spooky survey of fine art witches.

Reaching back into Greek mythology, we have Medea, sorceress and mortal acolyte of the goddess Hecate. When she meets Jason during his adventures with the Argonauts, they fall in big love — but when he throws her over to marry King Creon’s daughter, Creusa, Medea goes full witch on the situation. Hades hath no fury like a witch scorned: Medea poisons Creusa and murders the children she produced with Jason. In a

Arts education works. Now, California voters need to pay for it

Primbondh/ December 4, 2022/ arts to education

One perk my son had as a student in the Berkeley public schools was the vibrant music program available to every student beginning in the elementary grades. It’s a program largely funded by a parcel tax on real estate that has long received voter support.

It was through this program that my son was introduced to the trumpet. He excelled at it, ending up as first trumpet in the renowned jazz ensemble at Berkeley High. Ultimately though, he decided not to make music his career. Instead, he studied data science and statistics in college. Recently, he landed a job at a leading tech firm.

My son didn’t end up a musician by profession, but I am certain music education was a key to his success. Unfortunately, his experience is not typical of most students in California public schools. 

Most students in the state are not receiving the level of music

Is Shadow Puppetry a Dying Art Form?

Primbondh/ December 3, 2022/ arts & culture

Editor’s Note: This article was produced in collaboration with the Arts & Culture MA concentration at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism.


Preserve or adapt, change or disappear? The quandary that most long-practiced arts eventually face is once again brought into focus, this time at the Crossing the Line Festival, where a new performance piece is employing a very old art form: shadow puppetry. A practice commonly believed to have originated in Asia (though its exact provenance is uncertain), the craft of shadow puppetry had historically been passed down, master-apprentice style, through the generations. With varied technologies and media dominating contemporary performance, practitioners of puppetry and scholars say this ancient form of theatre is under threat of extinction. 

Shadow-puppet theatre is a global art form in which figures are illuminated by a light source onto a translucent screen, projecting shadows that are used to enact a narrative. For countries

Arts education is a right, not a privilege

Primbondh/ December 1, 2022/ arts to education

Without art, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

During distance learning, two of my grandparents passed away within a week. As a result, I fell into a depression that felt never-ending. What got me out of the dark was connecting to the California State Summer School for the Arts. For the first time in months, I was feeling creative; I started the rigorous application and was accepted that summer.

Before this opportunity, college was not an option. However, I am attending UC Irvine thanks to the Summer School for the Arts and a scholarship from the Herb Alpert Foundation. I am proof that even the smallest space for art in students’ lives can have a monumental impact.

I realize how privileged I am to have had an arts education, primarily since I had to leave my school district to pursue my artistic ambitions at
