Art at the Speed of Life Reviews

Inventive mixed-media artist Pam Carriker takes you on a journey to discover your own inspiration and creativity by showing you how easy it is to make beautiful, personal art every day using easily accessible materials such as paper, pencil and paint. These are mostly quick-make projects using up all the day-to-day 'bits' that we keep just in case there is a time when we can find a use for them. If this sounds familiar to you then now is the chance to use up that 'too good to throw away' item, saved tissue paper, or that inspirational piece of polystyrene lurking at the back of the cupboard!-Fabrications Life moves too fast for most of us. And being creative can fall further down the pecking order when there are more pressing chores to be done. But this book goes some of the way to making you rethink your priorities and fit in art every day. The book is structured into seven chapters and, at the heart of it, is a Seven-Day Journal, one section in each chapter. In these, you are given instructions on making a journal of your own within the seven-day time span. Time is of the essence here, and each segment is short but effective (from making your Ten Minute Journal, to painting the pages and transferring images onto it and so on). There are also musings by other artists on how they find their time, and suggestions on how you can too. But in addition to the Journal project, there are also other projects for you to tackle - 'Artist Spotlight Project' and 'Speed of Life Project' including making toilet paper mache! I liked the way that this book did not lecture you on making more time for yourself, but included real artists telling you how they achieved it. These gave food for thought about what you can achieve, and also small but effective projects that, when tackled, would give you a sense of achievement - but also scope to expand on. I'm glad I made the time to read it!-Workshop on the Web
