Publisher Comments:

A fresh new approach to tapping into our own creativity, using the images and artifacts of our dreams.

Getting inspired is one of the toughest parts of being an artist, whether we're a beginner or a seasoned professional. But as Tom Crockett shows us in this new book, finding ideas for our artwork is easier than we think. By simply exploring the images of our sleeping and waking dream states, we can discover a wealth of ideas and inspiration that are more authentic and powerful because they reveal our underlying spiritual self.

Recognizing the importance of allowing our spiritual side to infuse our art and the fulfillment this can bring, Tom Crockett has created a program to teach us all, no matter what level of artistic experience we have, how to bring art and spirit into one. The four different types of creative expression Crockett has identified--Finding, Arranging, Altering, and Making--open up artistic options for everyone, even for those of us who cannot yet imagine that we have the ability to create art. Filled with personal anecdotes from the author's creativity workshops and practical, easy-to-implement advice for tapping into our hidden creativity, The Artist Inside teaches us:

how to access the dreaming world to heighten creativity

that we can create in each piece of artwork a temporary home for the spirit

how creating a spiritual path can energize us and increase our intuitive capacity

When the process of making art is guided by the inner vision of our sleeping and waking dream states, we connect with something larger than ourselves and rediscover that creativity can be both a spiritual path and an important life tool.

Synopsis:

This liberating handbook provides breakthrough techniques for mining the content of one's dreams to rediscover what it means to live a creative life. Exercises include seeing the waking world as a dream, using your imagination to return to and interact with the landscape of an especially powerful dream, and creating sacred space for the work of art.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [241]-243).
