Check Out This Excerpt from Art Saves:
When you are curious enough to ask and explore answers to questions, truly innovative discoveries and artistic breakthroughs are made.
Stephanie has learned this lesson time and time again as she continues to push the envelope in her creative process as she asks herself "what if" questions regarding the tools, materials, and techniques related to her art.
Write with honesty. Writing your thoughts down in a journal with honesty, and without worry of having the journal perform in front of anyone by way of publication or display, is an important way to center yourself. Stephanie has learned that this sort of journaling—not to be confused with art journaling—is an effective way to stay grounded each and every day.
Enjoy the gift of creativity. In this fast paced world, as we juggle many deadlines and projects, it’s easy to get caught up in "keeping up" rather than truly savoring and appreciating creativity. Stephanie has learned that for her art to be real and meaningful, she’s got to create without worrying about "keeping up" or "measuring up, " but truly enjoying the gift of creativity.
A Word From the Author:
" As you read through this book, you will find that many of the artists offer the how, in terms of the stellar projects that they teach through the presentation of beautiful photographs and well-written instructions. More importantly, what all of the artists offer is to go beyond the how and explain the unique circumstances that they have experienced, in order to get to the universal why…which is that through the creative process, we not only find happiness, but also we find meaning, hope, and a way to connect to ourselves and to others." — Jenny Doh
