Do you love to read about the expressive arts? I sure do. I welcome you to view the list HERE.
My all-time favourite book on the list is Life Paint and Passion by Michele Cassou and Stewart Cubley.
"Life, Paint And Passion is a deeply involving approach to using the creative process as a tool for self-discovery. With vibrant and contagious enthusiasm, the authors liberate the reader's urge to create freely and spontaneously, as a painter or an artist in another medium, purely for the process of exploration, not for results."
I read this book over 20 years ago and I went to a painting retreat with one of its authors. After I painted in this way, I was utterly betrothed to spontaneous creativity.
I felt immediate relief from the honesty of the process. I have healed so much fear and pain through spontaneous creativity. And, as you probably know, I have applied the principles of spontaneous creativity to all of my coursework.
