Think you're not an artist? Our guest's book Sketch by Sketch will help you change your mind.
Sketch by Sketch will help anyone create a daily sketching practice that shifts them from negative thinking and spiraling emotions into the realm of possibility. Using art to connect the left brain and right brain, we can unlock our basic human need to create, express, and feel—regardless of whether we think of ourselves as artistic. Sheila Darcey says there is no need for training in the arts or for any artistic ‘talent.’ We are all creators.
Learn how a daily drawing practice can help you identify sources of anxiety and move beyond them, become more mindful of negative thoughts, deconstruct limiting patterns and beliefs, and tap into deeper reserves of compassion for yourself and others.
