Looking for ways to jump start your creativity, or reinvigorate your artistic practice?

The Creative Practice Book Club may be just the thing to get you inspired! We choose a selection of books aimed at bolstering creativity and art making in daily life. The next meeting will be on Thursday, March 26, at 7:30 PM. We will be reading and discussing several books by cartoonist, writer, and educator Lynda Barry.

Reading List:

  • What It Is: Do You Wish You Could Write? by Lynda Barry

Choose one or all of the books to read before the next meeting. Be prepared to discuss highlights and personal insights. In addition, the group has a show and tell of creative projects inspired by the reading. The projects may be exercises directly taken from the book, or inspired by what you read (not all the selections are project based) Happy reading!
