An art-making workshop in a book, Creating Art at the Speed of Life offers a 30-day syllabus, introducing and exploring each element in a series of exercises, complete with worksheets to help you evaluate your work and make it more successful and satisfying.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Even from the outset, this book captures the reader's attention. Rather than ruminating on how to be inspired, it launches straight into a short tutorial on how to make a simple but effective journal of your own using watercolour paper and adhesive canvas paper. It is to the point and perfect for warding off procrastination about how to get started. I found this part of the book made such sense that I made one immediately. It took me a couple of minutes tearing, folding, sticking and I was there. You start with something so simple you can't talk yourself out of it and then you have the perfect canvas to start looking at each lesson." —Workshop on the Web
