Play, Experiment and Discover the Creative Artist within!

Choose to be creative! Artist and teacher Nita Leland believes that creativity lives in everyone, from the novice artist to the professional. Develop and strengthen your natural curiosity, flexibility, independence and playfulness, and become the artist you want to be. Inside this updated and expanded edition of Nita's bestselling The Creative Artist are over 110 fun activities to exercise your creative muscle:

  • Explore what drives you by creating an autobiographical collage
  • Jot down ideas for projects and techniques and place them in a jar for random retrieval when you need a jumpstart
  • Target "dull" subjects and find ways to make them interesting
  • Push your creative boundaries by trying new methods and media: paper crafts, Japanese brush painting, creative quilting, inventive photography, grown-up finger painting, monotype and more

Nita's exciting, enlightening instruction - plus inspiring art from 100 other fine artists and crafters in every medium - will coach you to creative success!
