Pathways To Creativity
By Helene Jukoff
Printed 8.5″ x 11″ full color 96 page book
Every artist faces the challenge of how to use subject matter (a person, a vase, a bowl of fruit, a scene) as a starting point to achieve an original work. Artists begin by copying what they see, whether it is directly from nature, from photographs or from other paintings. The main objective of the lessons in Pathways To Creativity is to help students move beyond copying to overcome what I call copy paralysis.
