Three more ways to start a conversation about your art:
6. The My-Technique-is-Really-Fascinating Greeting
For use when you know people are extremely interested in how you make art. Best done along with a hands-on demonstration.
“Have you ever seen a painting made with wax? That’s what encaustic is . . . ”
7. The I’m-Sorry-I-Didn’t-Catch-You-
“I am so sorry I was talking to someone else when you came in. Is there anything I can tell you about my work?”
8. The Gee-You’ve-Been-Looking-at-that-for-
“Let me tell you about that sculpture. The model was . . . ”
What are your favorite ways to start a conversation at an opening or in your booth?
