However, “The Artist Within” may very well be able to help me make up for my lack of “natural talent”. The Author, Whitney Ferre, explores the world of our untapped potential. She shares her own story of how she moved out of Sales and into Art with no “natural abilities”. She learned to unlock the brain’s potential and hone the skills that we don’t even know that we have!
This book walks you through that process in a riveting manner. It is made for adults, but fitting for children also – and it would be a perfect homeschooling curriculum! It is so easy to read and laid out in a workbook form, so that you can take notes as you learn.
Whitney breaks down the book into eight bite-sized “exercises”: Exercises in Emphasis, Balance, Proportion, Unity, Harmony, Contrast, Rhythm, and Repetition. She explains each one in easy-to-understand analogies as she lays the foundation to help us SEE LIFE through the creative side of our brain.
