Source Art in the World : How Your Authentic Creativity Heals The Planet is the long-awaited sequel to author Aviva Gold's famed "Painting From The Source: Awakening The Artist's Soul In
Everyone" (Harper Collins, 1998), a guide to expressing the soul's essence with simple tempera paint and paper. "Source Art In The World" takes the reader to the next level, by inspiring the reader to not only seek out the artist within - whether it be painter, writer, filmmaker, musician, dancer, poet, or any other creative path - but to bring that creativity into the world and to inspire others to do so as well, not just for the sake of inner well-being, but for the well-being of the planet that we all share.

"Source Art" is an essential read for anyone interested in how and why authentic creativity can re-enchant and heal our ailing world, and why everyone must participate. It is a call for art activism as a catalyst for cultural transformation. This handbook for radical arts activism includes instruction for leading groups, eco-creative workshops and numerous other practical applications. The digital companion version is supplemented with over 70 links to illustrative web sites, definitions and videos.


"Aviva Gold believes conscious evolution can be sparked by an outpouring of creativity and her book and work are an important piece of the trans-formative fabric of the human imagination. Whether you are a practicing or a self-repressed artist in waiting, you are invited to play your part in the art revolution by reading her book."
-Jeff Hunter,
New Paradigm Press

"Here is the manifesto for joyous creative change the world has been waiting for. Aviva leads us into the future fearlessly as only a fully wild woman can, paintbrush aloft, chanting and dancing. She is a worthy guide as we paint the new world into being."
-Pat B. Allen,
"Art is a Way of Knowing"
