Tell Your Story

What happens when you know your art is good but you can’t seem to get more people to notice or buy? Trying harder leads to burnout and spending more on advertising. After all, doesn’t the work speak for itself?

Often the answer is no. The answer lies elsewhere. It’s your story and the story of your artwork. Most of us tell the “outside” story, such as details of our work. The real story lies within and expresses your deepest values and hopes.

This story touches on the lasting, visionary quality of greatness we all carry. It is this story that will motivate, inspire and attract the right customers to you.

Join story coach, Sheila Carroll, as she walks you through the many ways you can use your personal story to build trust and authenticity. She will show you how to:


  • Use storytelling marketing basics
  • Share your creative routine 
  • Invite people into your process
  • Tell your story in different ways on multiple mediums


Art Reach’s “Tell Your Story” workshop will be held on Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2018. Lunch served at 11:45 am. Program runs from noon to 1 pm in the Idonea Hersee Classroom at Art Reach, 111 E. Broadway in downtown Mt. Pleasant.


Cost is $5 or free for Art Walk Central artists. Class size is limited. Pre-registration is required no later than 5 pm Tuesday, August 21.

Sheila Carroll runs a speaking and coaching business, Story Rising, conducts presentations and facilitates business retreats on how story can create a competitive advantage in business development.

Thank you for contacting us. We will get back to you as soon as possible
