Celebrate Your Creative Self helps you act upon your artistic inspirations and joyfully appreciate the creative process. You'll develop the skills you need to express yourself and explore your favourite mediums. The 22 step-by-step demonstrations will help you experiment with your creative process using new surfaces, mediums and unique tools. You'll learn to:

  • Capture and manipulate light in your work
  • Try out new and unusual painting surfaces
  • Break the "rules" of colour composition that inhibit your creativity
  • Create your own dynamic designs for paintings with more impact
  • Add layers of meaning to your work with the symbolism inherent in both man-made objects and natural elements
  • Imbue your work with a touch of fantasy and recapture the magic you remember from childhood
  • Move beyond traditional 2-dimensional painting into 3-dimensional reconstruction
  • Tap the deepest recesses of your creative wellspring by taking risks, getting personal and making meaningful statements with your work

Once you've built up a repertoire of skills, you'll be able to turn any idea into finished art by applying the techniques that best accommodate your inspiration.
