Synopsis: You can make art and deeply appreciate the Art of Mistakes.
When it comes to mistakes, we're all experts. Really. Yet fear of making mistakes often holds us back from trying new things. Inside, you will discover how our mistakes can be powerful opportunities for new ideas that we could never think up deliberately.
Whether you are a seasoned artist, or just getting started, learning to embrace and use mistakes can spell the beginning of a new chapter in your art-making life.
Perhaps you were told by a former teacher or "expert" that your drawing or painting wasn't good enough, or you've had your creativity stymied in some other way. Maybe you have artistic impulses and desires but feel like you aren't one of the "chosen few" who can make art. Now you can learn ideas and painting techniques that show you a way of creative thinking that turn even your mistakes into beautiful works of art!
"Of all places, art is a spot where mistakes should be considered honored guests."
• 16 painting techniques to encourage creative thinking and experimentation
• Permission to make mistakes as you make art.
• Methods to discover how mistakes can serve your art and creativity
