Description

Based on interviews with a culturally, geographically, and aesthetically diverse group of 75 mid-career artists, Creative Practices For Visual Artists is a reassessment of the methods and approaches used by highly successful artists in their practices.

The book offers concrete resources and solutions to the challenges created over the last fifteen years by the culture of assessment in K-12 education, the impact of digital media and culture, and the high costs of college education. Promoting a holistic approach to artistic practice, it discusses the role of focused and non-objective research, the benefits of reframing one’s approach to studio time, forms of embodied research, open-ended experimentation, and the generative gifts of anxiety and failure.
