When your an artist, even though you don't think so, writing can be a very important part of what you do. Let's take this for example, you go to a gallery opening and you meet a very well educated person. Now this person asks you what your painting mean to them, so how would you respond? Writing doesn't only take your words on a page to a higher level, but with enough practice it brings your vocabulary to a higher level while talking to individual people. I consider writing a huge part of what i do in the field of art. But wait, isn't writing considered a form of art? Without writing we wouldn't have "Romeo and Juliet", "Alice In Wonderland", "Taming of the Shrew" and countless other's. So if you DON'T consider writing a big part of what you do as an artist, then you shouldn't consider yourself one.
