Julia Cameron. Published by Pan.
is a part of you that is neglected; the creative self that you gave up
on a long time ago, perhaps because of the need to earn a living or else
through lack of self-belief. If you ever longed to draw, paint, write,
compose - or simply break out of your own self-imposed boundaries - then
The Artist's Way will help you unlock your latent creativity.
This twelve-week course takes you gently by the hand and guides you
through the process of recovering your creative self. It helps dispel
the "I'm not talented enough"/"it's far too late"
syndrome and tenderly helps you to set free your inner artist. This book
takes the mystique out of the creative process, and makes it part of
your daily life. This book has already helped thousands to discover
their creative talents and it will easily do the same for you too.

Vein Of Gold - A Journey To Your Creative Heart
Julia Cameron. Published By J.P. Tarcher.
This wonderful sequel to The Artist'
Way develops the theme of bringing out the creative artist within
you. Whereas the first book emphasised discovery and reunion with that
artistic side of you, The Vein Of Gold lays its emphasis upon
healing and rehabilitation. Here we are concerned with taking that
wounded artist that we have discovered and nurturing it to full strength
an power. The vein of gold referred to "carries the precious cargo
of the flow of our true nature" as Cameron herself puts it. Once
you have re-established that flow, using the tools in this book, then
you can create more freely and know the true value of what you create.
Beyond creativity though, The Vein Of Gold is also about Spirit
as all creativity ultimately proceeds from here. So this is a spiritual
as well as creative journey. You will enjoy it.

New Drawing On The Right Side Of The Brain
Betty Edwards. Published
by J.P. Tarcher. 291 Pages
people would love to draw, but are too afraid to even begin. If they do,
their puny efforts are too embarrassing for even them to look at!
To the rescue comes "The New Drawing
On The Right Side Of The Brain", an updated classic that has sold
2.5 million copies and been translated into thirteen different
languages. In her workshops, author Betty Edwards is renowned for taking
raw beginners and turning them, within a period of only five days, into
accomplished artists with drawings to be proud of. This book can do the
same for you.
It literally does draw on the right side
of the brain, which is why this book differs from most art books, and
can achieve such extraordinary results. The approach is quite counter to
logic, and the exercises deliberately bypass the
critical, rational parts of the brain to get to the artist within.
You will be taken from your early embarrassing efforts, through many
practical exercises, to drawing skills you can truly be proud of.
If you want to break the fear barrier
with regards to artistic creativity, this is an excellent book to begin
with. It has taught millions of people to draw and can do the exact same
thing for you too.
