Product Overview

This book is about using art as an instrument of personal transformation, enabling us to move from an inherited to a chosen state of being. Peter London offers inspiration and fresh ideas to artists, art students, and art teachersas well as to people who think they can't draw a straight line but want to explore the joys of creative expression. Inside every person, he believes, there is an original, creative self that has been covered over by secondhand ideas, borrowed beliefs, and conditioned behavior. By freeing the capacity for visual expressiona natural human language possessed by everyonewe can awaken and release the full powers of that original self. Among the topics and exercises included are:

How to increase the ability to visualize, fantasize, and dream
Obstacles to the creative encounter and what to do about them
Experimenting with art media as true mediators between imagination and expression
Making masks to reveal the hidden self
Painting with forbidden colors
Arranging found objects as metaphors for one's life
