Drawing Out the Muses by Alexandria Levin

Drawing Out the Muses is based on the premise that visual inspiration can be found anywhere; in nature, with household objects, though sound, using raw visual elements, dreams and even from being uninspired. This book shows you how sources of creativity can be found absolutely everywhere, and at anytime; while giving you countless ways of looking at absolutely anything resulting in infinite forms of expression.

Artists will learn about the nature of creativity and different ways of seeing things, with over 300 fun and serious examples, step-by-step processes, exercises, ideas, explorations, things to do, and ways of interpreting the world around you, most with multiple variations from which to choose. Every last one is designed to give you something to work on or play with, while helping to spark your own creativity in the process.

Drawing Out the Muses was written for all visual artists by any definition, who may be at any career level from beginner to accomplished professional, and working in any medium, including traditional crafts. It is for any visually-oriented person who is interested in expanding their own creativity. Designers, students, hobbyists, educators, workshop leaders and event planners will find this book considerably useful.

About the Author

Alexandria Levin was born in New York City, and has lived for extensive periods of time in Boston, San Francisco, Albuquerque and Philadelphia. A graduate of the San Francisco Art Institute, she has always been true to her own artistic vision, while remaining serious about the career details of being an artist. As a painter who believes deeply in continuous artistic growth, and never settling, she has created four strong, distinct bodies of work over the years, all the while exploring various materials, techniques and creative approaches.

Besides her diverse accomplishments as a visual artist, writing has always been evident in Alexandria's life ever since the age of 15 when she began writing poetry and essays, many of which have been published in print and online. Hopelessly creative, perceptive, organized and ethical, she conceived Painted Jay Publishing to help change and improve things for all artists; in business, knowledge of the art world, arts education and creative processes. More books are currently in development.
