About the Author

Peter London--painter, author, art educator, and art therapist--has taught the approach presented in this and other books to thousands of students, ranging from teens to octogenarians, from "art phobics" to professional artists. Professor Emeritus at the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth, and a 2002 Distinguished Fellow at the National Art Education Association, he lives in Fairhaven, Massachusetts.

Reviews

"Through carefully and lovingly constructed encounters with the elements, directions, balance and imbalance both around and inside us, London demonstrates how to establish an intimate experience with Nature."--Spirit of Change

"This profoundly inspiring book offers the same deep resonance as London's workshops and seminars: you are in the presence of a master teacher whose worldview is well articulated and well lived. This is a must-read for artists, teachers, and learners at all levels."--Kit Grauer, Ph.D., past president of the International Society of Education through Art

"Peter London has done it again. In this book he stokes the eternal fire of creation at the start and sustains the grand and subtle heat on every page."--Shaun McNiff, author of Trust the Process: An Artist's Guide to Letting Go

"Art educators interested in developing a more holistic approach to their teaching will benefit enormously from Peter London's insight, observations, and efforts."--Karen Lee Carroll, Graduate Director, Center for Art Education, Maryland Institute College of Art
