Meditations on the Creative Life
By (author) Deborah Haynes
Art Lessons by Deborah Haynes
Book DescriptionWriting in the same tradition as renowned artist Robert Henri in his classic book The Art Sprit, Deborah J. Haynes looks at the value of art and making art in today's world. What does it mean to become and work as an artist today? What are the unique challenges facing artists in the twenty-first century, and what skills are required to overcome them? In Art Lessons, Haynes addresses the mind, body, and spirit of today's artists with her personal reflections on what it takes to succeed and feel creatively and spiritually fulfilled. The lessons she shares range in depth and scope from the simple to the deeply philosophical, from encouraging her reader to always have a pencil - or crayon! - in hand, to insisting that an artist take a seat, to connecting art profoundly to daily life and the earth. Through her own reflections on art and being an artist, Haynes provides a spiritual compass for today's emerging artists. Art Lessons will inspire all those who wonder what makes an artist today and how they might contribute to the future.
