"Teaches how to make your mark, how to be accepting of success and failure, how to experiment to uncover new areas of creativity, how to overcome the fear of getting started, how to love yourself through what you create but most of all it urges us all to JUST DO IT. The results are not as important as the creative process itself." --The3rdi magazine for working women
"I LOVE YOUR BOOK! You are very encouraging . . . You show that drawing demands we know ourselves as creative beings." --Diana Korzenik, former chair, art education, Massachusetts College of Art Boston
Cat Bennett suggests that drawing, or artistic activity generally, is like meditation and the spiritual aspects of yoga. It creates a single point of focus and when one is fully engaged the distractions of the outside world are ignored. For a period the artist is in the zone , as sportsmen call it, when nothing else matters and the mind is totally at one with the task in hand. --Martin P Wilson, Suite 101
