Concise: This is a get-it-going handbook of just over 50 pages -no long-read of fluff and philosophy!
This book is not a comprehensive book on traditional art therapy. It's tenets even disagree with formal non-directive art therapy approaches. This is a very practical approach developed by working with hundreds of real people and creating effective results.
The author states, "It dawned on me as I struggled to draw an identifiable stick figure on the white board while teaching that I have my art in six galleries and high end shops spanning over 150 miles, I have sold and shipped pieces across the country, …and I can’t draw! If I don’t have to know how to draw -then you don’t have to either! You don’t have to have art skills or talent to get what you need from this book. In fact, it’s written by someone that can’t draw! I just don’t have the patience for it. All my art is done quickly, so my approach to art therapy is to produce the art fast and then get to the good stuff –the therapy -where people get healed from their past and move on to their future!
