A self help book for the young person who wants to choose art as a subject or the youngster who thinks art is not for him. This book shows the steps one needs to be a creative artist early on. It includes how to get over artist block, develop and artist statement, how to choose a subject to paint, develop an artist's mode of seeing, develop a composition, relaxation exercises for the young artist, art self critique and self promotion. The book also includes oil and pastel paintings by the author, his students, and grandfather. Also of value to art teachers.


I did not begin my art career till I was age 24. Untill then I could not draw ,but began to learn to paint after hearing in an art history class in university that anyone can learn to paint. I did, but it took me 20 more years. During this process I began to study what the differences are between people seemingly born with an artistic talent and those that learn it with time. I also began to develop a mode of teaching art that is different than the regular art classes I was use to where the teacher says here is a shoe on the table- now begin to draw it. Needless to say, many students drop out of these courses believing they can't succeed at art like the others in the class. A graphic book and based on my experience in helping children with learning problems, Creative Painting  deals with thinking and seeing like an artist . It is intended in breaking down the creative process so that rather than being an overwhelming project, painting becomes an orderly means of self-expression. The book shows the steps one needs to be a creative artist, develop an artistic eye, and think like an artist. It includes how to get over the first hurdles of painting and dealing with mistakes, develop an artist statement, how to choose a subject to paint, focal point , use and recognition of color, development of creative ideas, chosing a subject to paint, developing an artist's mode of seeing, painting composition, relaxation and concetration exercises specific for increasing creative awareness, and how to critique your own painting.

Professional Reviews

Jump Into Art and be Creative
Janie Bowman - Creative Painting is a book for reluctant young artists of all ages. Written by a multi-talented author who has a treasure box full of affirming tips and techniques, this little book will inspire you to dive head first into art. Go ahead, take a chance. "The most valuable coins and stamps are the ones double minted by mistake. So don not try to please everyone, just yourself first." This is one of the most empowering statements I've read.
You'll find tips, techniques and affirmations to encourage your child (or you!) to muzzle negative thinking and replace it with positive affirmations. You'll read how the author began exploring the world of art, and suggested stepping-stones to begin your own journey.

This is a nice, neat and colorful book to own. You'll find yourself referring to it often
