This small book, just 6 inches square, excels in presenting ideas that both artists and designers, at all stages of their careers, cannot be reminded of too often.(Interior Design)
Kit White's 101 Things to Learn in Art School is a delight…Anyone who has ever visited an art museum, made art, or read about it could learn something from this little book.(Beth Williamson Cassone)
There cannot be a better, smarter manual for anyone crazy enough to want to become a visual artist, or for the encouraging and/or bewildered loved ones of such a person.(Kurt Anderson Studio 360 Blog)
Everyone craves useful wisdom, right? Especially when they're young, and even more especially if they want to become one of those modern alchemists known as visual artists. Well, here it is: page for impeccably crafted page, the best, most thoughtful and lucid primer available for any young (or old) would-be maker of art.(Kurt Andersen, novelist, Heyday, Turn of the Century and public radio host, Studio 360)
Kit White gives us a 'manual' in every sense of the word, a lifetime of art-making condensed into 101 cogent maxims that fit in the hand of the aspiring artist.(Wendy Steiner, author of The Real Real Thing: The Model in the Mirror of Art)
There is a great myth that somehow rules constrain creativity. With grace and wit, Kit White's new book dismantles this received idea, and many others along the way. If the cardinal rule of writing is 'show, don't tell,' Kit White has done exactly that -- he shows us what art-making is by example as much as through the rich content of this incisive book.(Polly Apfelbaum, Artist)
