Product description

Review

"A joy to read. In a style both conversational and precise, London questions the conventional attitudes that form a barrier to keep art outside most people's lives. London shows us that making images is as natural as speech, as dreams."--Yoga Journal

"Passionate and insightful . . . A must-read for all artists, art students, and art teachers. But anyone who wants to explore their own inner dimensions of creativity can learn and profit from it."--Intuition

"Peter London is grounded in his approach to the visual arts and he communicates it beautifully. He gives a fresh vision to creativity."--Natalie Goldberg, author of Writing Down the Bones: Freeing the Writer Within

"I am impressed--no, I am thrilled--by the courage and ripeness of his guidance toward creativity, how it can work, how it can be helped and hindered, how it can change everything."--M.C. Richards, author of Centering in Pottery, Poetry, and the Person

"His eloquent, at times poetic ruminations return the reader to some earlier state of grace that may have been damaged or neglected in the hurly-burly of teaching. London not only invites the reader on this journey to some unexplored recesses of the mind, but also provides very specific tasks to ease the passage of transition. Philosopher and artist though he may be, London's commitment as a teacher shines on every page."--Al Hurwitz, author of Gifted and Talented in Art and coauthor of Children and Their Art --This text refers to the paperback edition.

About the Author

Peter London--painter, author, art educator, and art therapist--has taught the approach presented in this and other books to thousands of students, ranging from teens to octogenarians, from "art phobics" to professional artists. Professor Emeritus at the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth, and a 2002 Distinguished Fellow at the National Art Education Association, he lives in Fairhaven, Massachusetts. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
