This is one of the best books I have brought in a long time. I am totally blown away by the work Jenny Doh does anyway with her courses and website with so much excellent information, when I heard about this book I knew I had to order a copy. As soon as it came I poured over the pages. The artists come from all walks of life, and share how the creative activity is an important part of their life. What I wasn't prepared for was how much they actually shared, each giving a mini lesson with instructions for working in their favourite material, and I am still working through the generous lessons. They share words of wisdom for your journey and ways in which we can impact on our own community and use art to tell our own stories.
For me Art definitely Saves, I'm sold, I will buy the t-shirt! If you are thinking about getting this book I suggest you go ahead, you won't be disappointed, from photography, mixed media, assemblage pieces, digital art, fabric and more.... there is so much colour, and examples of the artists work for you to be inspired and let your own creative voice be heard!
