Editorial Reviews

sheistoofondofbooks.com
Artistic entrepreneur Whitney Ferre begins The Artist Within with the premise that "our confidence in our ability to create change has been sabotaged by the luxuries of modern living." That is, the very conveniences that simplify our lives (take-out or prepared food, manufactured clothing, warehouse-style shopping centers), have limited our desire - and even our ability - to produce or create, these basic items for ourselves. The Artist Within offers a set of creative exercises to help you strengthen the right-brain, the creative side, which is in the shadow of the over-developed left-brain. I expected this book to be interesting, but I wasn't prepared for all the fun I had while reading it and working my way through the various creativity exercises. From simple "make your mark" doodling to more extensive projects involving painting, weaving, and collage, there's something for everyone.
