  • What is a curated art book?

    Each month we read and discuss a book curated especially for The Artists Book Club, on technique, artists’ biographies and the creative process.

    All books chosen for the club will meet specific criteria. They must: enlighten us about artists and their process for creating art, show us how to apply the principles of art to our own work, and guide us along the path to finding our own singular creative voice.

  • What’s in the newsletter?

    The Artists Book Club is the only book club for artists!

    Each month I will discuss a curated art book.  You will receive a newsletter each week with a book review, important art concepts from the book explained and how to apply them to your own work.
