Drawing Lab for Mixed-Media Artists offers readers a fun way to learn and gain expertise in drawing through experimentation and play. There is no right or wrong result, yet, the readers gain new skills and confidence, allowing them to take their work to a new level.
“I’ve never considered myself an ‘artist’, because I’ve never been able to ‘draw’. That belief has colored my artistic expression for decades. Lately, the pull towards art has led me to some wonderful books, but THIS BOOK speaks to me. When I look through the activities, I know I can do them, and I know they are non-fail projects. There is so much fun and whimsy built in, that creating will be a joy. I stumbled on this book by accident, and what a happy accident it has turned out to be. If blank pages intimidate you, Carla has solutions to inspire.” — Marme, review from amazon.com
“Thank you for being you, Carla. You changed art for me. Actually, you de-freezed it, after you helped me dig it out of polar ice.” — Seema
