These are the 5 Arts of Effective Communication!

When we hear the word effective communication, we may immediately think about how to be a good public speaker. Mastering the science of public speaking is really needed as the ability to convey ideas in front of the public.

However, this paper does not specifically enter into that realm, but rather on communication in general. How to communicate with other people as well as possible so that the message conveyed or heard can be understood properly.

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.

These 3 hobbies in the arts can be turned into a digital business

The development of technology grows very rapidly to be able to shift the pattern of people’s lives. We who are now accustomed to being spoiled by technology will slowly leave old habits so that business people are required to rack their brains and adapt to the times.

7 Artists on the Self-Care Rituals that Keep Them Creative

Primbondh/ November 27, 2022/ the 7 arts


Alina Cohen

Artmaking requires significant self-discipline and an ability to ruminate on abstract ideas for hours or days at a time, over the course of many years. Some artists turn to self-care regimens to add structure to their lives or to hone mindfulness, both of which help in furthering their art practices. The seven artists below find that activities like exercise, meditation, yoga, and drinking green tea can boost creativity, allowing them to do their best work in the studio. You can take inspiration from these rituals, whether you’re attempting to make a masterpiece or simply starting a new project.

Primbondh/ November 26, 2022/ history of arts

GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) – Music filled the Hampton-Pinckney neighborhood Sunday afternoon for the second annual Porchfest in the historic district just outside downtown Greenville.

Organizers say they went bigger and better for this year’s Porchfest, with 20 musical acts on ten porches and an artisan village for the first time.

“Just a casual atmosphere for folks to come stroll the neighborhood, listen to some music, and just have a great time,” said HP Porchfest Committee Member Amy Connor.

There are no fancy stages or stadium seats, but the streets were packed.

“I have two kids and they’ve been out dancing in the street,” said Mary Catherine Navarro.

The porches in the neighborhood are a favorite spot of many who call this area home. Those who help put on Porchfest want to share that happy place with others.

“Historically, porches have always been a gathering place for neighbors, for friends,

In October 2017, Gov. Jim Justice and the West Virginia Department of Transportation (WVDOT) rolled out the $2.8 billion Roads to Prosperity highway and bridge construction and maintenance program. It would prove to be the largest infrastructure investment in the history of the Mountain State.

Unsettling California | The UCSB Current

Primbondh/ November 22, 2022/ arts and media

Amidst the LA race riots of 1992, the Black man whose beating by white police was caught on video sent a question like a missive into mainstream media: “Can we all just get along?” asked Rodney King. In the recent exhibition “Unsettling California,” the question resurfaced in perforated letters cut from a wax-dripped paper box by Mexican-American artist Pilar Agüero-Esparza. The wax pigment is the result of melting the “skin tones” from Crayola’s “multicultural” crayon sets.          

Agüero-Esparza is one of 11 artists who presented work in “Unsettling California,” in the Glass Box Gallery, co-curated by Dani Kwan and Samantha Harris, graduate students in art and education, respectively. Other artists exhibited include Debra Scacco, Devon Tsuno, Hillary Mushkin, Jessica Bellamy, Kate Saubestre, Marisa de la Peña, Margaret Laurena Kemp, Mercedes Dorame, Sarah Rosalena Brady and Silas Munro. Three of the artists are affiliated with UCSB. Sarah Rosalena Brady is an assistant

Yes on Prop. 28. Arts education for kids is critical

Primbondh/ November 22, 2022/ arts to education

This summer, Desert Sun reporter Jonathan Horwitz wrote a moving article about the retirement of longtime Palm Springs High School band and visual corps directors Brian and Beverley Ingelson. Under their auspices, Palm Springs High students performed around the world, including at the Sydney Opera House, Disneyland Paris, the Great Wall of China and the second inauguration parade for President Barack Obama. It’s amazing to see our local kids attaining the proficiency to perform at such places and have these world-expanding opportunities at such a young age. 

Arts education has been shown time and time again to improve motivation, concentration, confidence and teamwork. It is associated with gains in math, reading, cognitive ability, critical thinking and verbal skills. Palm Springs High is fortunate to have a strong performing arts program with robust community support. But not all schools in California, let alone our valley, are so lucky.

What started as a small construction project in the early 1950s is now the DeGrazia Gallery in the Sun, designed and built by artist Ettore Ted DeGrazia. The first building to go up was an adobe mission chapel out of bricks made from the mud of the 10-acre property. Now you, too, may visit the open-roofed Chapel of the Sun, dedicated to Our Lady of Guadalupe, as well as DeGrazia’s works in ever-changing exhibits that trace historical events and native cultures of the Southwest.

Primbondh/ November 20, 2022/ arts & culture


As bike tours passed, locals walked their dogs and lines of pelicans flew overhead, government officials, community leaders and dozens in ranger “flat hats” gathered in Fort Mason this morning to mark the 50th anniversary of the creation of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA), the first urban national park in the United States.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco) headlined a group of leaders who took the podium in Fort Mason’s Great Meadow under a larger-than-life statue of Phillip Burton, the congressman from San Francisco who authored the legislation that created the GGNRA that was signed into law by President Richard Nixon on Oct. 27, 1972.
