Working Around the Block

by Sister Hilda Kleiman, OSB

In Creative Block: Get Unstuck, Discover New Ideas: Advice and Projects from 50 Successful Artists (public library), Danielle Krysa brings together artists from dozens of media to share ideas on how to keep the artistic process moving.  Krysa asked each artist to share the moment they first thought of themselves as a artist, how they deal with their inner critic, and for one Creative Unblock Project.

The Creative Unblock Projects include:
Hand-lettering with Mary Kate McDevitt
Collages with Anthony Zinonos
Altering favorite images with Trey Speegle
Making original images in three minutes with Sidney Pink
Taking short trips with Mel Robson
