Editorial Reviews

Review

"An exuberant guide to nourishing creativity and encouraging artistic experimentation. In this debut art book, Rothschild encourages readers to have confidence in their creative abilities, develop a tolerance for mistakes, and understand the value of teachers and other authority figures without being constrained by them.... An attractively packaged and well-written handbook for aspiring artists that encourages readers to find value in mistakes as well as successful creations." --Kirkus Reviews

About the Author

Melanie Rothschild has sold her artwork, much of which was inspired by mistakes, in many stores and galleries throughout the US. She has a Masters of Science in the Study of Creativity and teaches workshops on the subject. MelanieRothschild.com
