The Elements of Creative And Expressive Artistry

More About This Title The Elements of Creative And Expressive Artistry

English

THE ELEMENTS OF CREATIVE AND EXPRESSIVE ARTISTRY identifies the nine root elements common to all artistic disciplines. Whether you are a writer, visual artist, or a performer, learning the fundamental elements will help you unlock your full artistic potential and create art that is more expressive, dramatic, and engaging.

Hundreds of relevant art examples, citations, and quotations from prominent art professionals, philosophers, and scientists inform the pages of THE ELEMENTS OF CREATIVE AND EXPRESSIVE ARTISTRY. Authors, painters, sculptors, dancers, and artists from nearly every creative field provide knowledge and insight into many different forms of art, including visual arts, literary arts, dramatic arts, musical arts, dance arts, and various hybrid art forms.

For advanced artists and art professionals looking to bring depth and nuance to their work, THE ELEMENTS OF CREATIVE AND EXPRESSIVE ARTISTRY presents thirty-six new elements that branch from the nine root elements and offer additional avenues of exploration for a lifetime of artistic development. For the art critic, it also presents a fundamental basis on which to evaluate artistic work of any domain. Even the non-artist who possesses a general love for art will develop a deeper appreciation of art by understanding the nine root elements.
