Not so long ago, tie-dyed art made a political statement . Not so much today.
Susan says, “Those who grew up during the 60s may have over-dosed on tie-dyed tee shirts. Everyone knew how to turn a white tee shirt into a statement with a package of Rit dye and rubber bands. A tie-dye tee meant hippy. It came with a whiff of pot and long hair in dreads. It stood for counter culture. The Grateful Dead fans walked among us in vibrant tie dye.

Lucia says, “You may have often heard the saying, ‘write what you know’. And in our blog series, we have often stressed the importance of storytelling in your presentation. When you tell stories about what moves you or what you know well you can make a strong impression on your audience. There is nothing like a good story to keep peoples’ attention. The best storytellers have intimate understanding of their subject. Use your expertise to keep people engaged. And be generous with you knowledge. Your audience will appreciate it.”
