About this product
- DescriptionBased on author, Barbara Diane Barry's popular course Art for Self-Discovery and supported by research in psychology and the science of brain function, PAINTING YOUR WAY OUT OF A CORNER guides readers through the process of overcoming blocks and expressing themselves freely in painting. Through a series of exercises that emphasise improvisation and risk-taking, readers will learn how to quiet their inner critics and strengthen their creativity. The more we learn to play and accept whatever appears on the page, the more we are able to try new things in life. Readers will be inspired by Barry's delightful full-colour paintings featured throughout the book.
