I'm one of the fortunate artists who has taken a workshop with Steve Aimone. Not to sound cliché, but studying with Aimone truly changed my life and altered my art career. This book is the next best thing to being in one of his workshops.
A masterful teacher, an innovative thinker, a sensitive soul, a deep resource of art history and knowledge, Steve has spent his lifetime brewing up an art curriculum titled "The Spiritual Language of Art".
"Expressive Drawing" is part of his lifetime of work and is a book that will help you think about your art in a different way, provide you with ways to explore and change your approach, and give you a fresh set of eyes. You'll never quite see things the same way after working through this "mini-workshop in a book".
And if you really want an immersion into a valuable experience that will not only enrich your art, but enrich your life, then sign up for one of his workshops.
And although this may sound something like a sales pitch, it's not. I'm a person who started creating art as a visual journaling exercise, an attempt to heal...never with any intention to show my art or make it a career. As I continued my process and found Aimone's classes, my work developed at a rapid pace and pushed my career quickly into galleries.
The book is a great introduction into the curriculum that Steve has created. As a beginner or pro, this book will speak to you. [...]
