E-BOOK EXCERPT

More than 50 assignments, ideas, and prompts to expand your world and help you make outstanding new things to put into it Curator Sarah Urist Green left her office in the basement of an art museum to travel and visit a diverse range of artists, asking them to share prompts that relate to their own ways of working. The result is You Are an Artist, a journey of creation through which you'll invent imaginary friends, sort books, declare a cause, construct a landscape, find your band, and become someone else (or at least try). Your challenge is to filter these assignments through the lens of your own experience and make art that reflects the world as you see it. You don't have to know how to draw well, stretch a canvas, or mix a paint color that perfectly matches that of a mountain stream. This book is for anyone who wants to make art, regardless of experience level. The only materials you'll need are what you already have on hand or can source for free. Full of insights, techniques, and inspiration from art history, this book opens up the processes and practices of artists and proves that you, too, have what it takes to call yourself one. You Are an Artist brings together more than 50 assignments gathered from some of the most innovative creators working today, including Sonya Clark, Michelle Grabner, The Guerrilla Girls, Fritz Haeg, Pablo Helguera, Nina Katchadourian, Toyin Ojih Odutola, J. Morgan Puett, Dread Scott, Alec Soth, Gillian Wearing, and many others.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

A celebration of the beauty and power of crochet--specifically, the life-changing benefits this fiber art has brought to one extraordinary boy, 11-year-old crocheting prodigy Jonah Larson. As his tens of thousands of crochet friends already know, Jonah can crochet anything, including a cowl that has become his signature piece, bright afghans, intricate doilies, fashionable hats, and stuffed animals. A worldwide audience follows his every stitch. Jonah has won over fifty awards for his work, been featured in leading crochet publications, and is partnering with a major yarn company for the creation of new projects and online tutorials. In short, Jonah has been credited for lighting the crochet community on fire, and he is proud to help spread the word--crochet is anything but a dying art. What Jonah's crochet friends may not already know, and what Jonah would like to share with them and young people everywhere, is that through crochet he is also piecing together a pattern for his life, a pattern that he has now turned into the title of his first book, Hello, Crochet Friends! Making Art, Being Mindful, Giving Back: Do What Makes You Happy. Woven into Jonah's beautifully photographed and detailed autobiography are three important themes: Making Art. Jonah welcomes readers into his process, sharing everything from his preferred crocheting atmosphere--end of sofa, lights dimmed, close to his mom--to his favorite stitches and yarns. How can Jonah crochet so quickly? He writes, "It's like breathing to me." Being Mindful. For many years, school was a place where Jonah, despite excelling academically, kept getting into trouble--sometimes big trouble. Jonah writes, ..".nothing seemed to be working..." to make things better. Nothing, that is, until he discovered crochet. It was an uncommon interest for a kid his age and his gender, but Jonah didn't care. Crocheting calmed his mind and made him happy; and in fifth grade, his teacher invited him to bring his crocheting to school. Now Jonah could pick up a hook and some yarn and "crochet away" any urge to misbehave. Jonah writes, "I quickly noticed something I didn't expect or understand. When I was crocheting, I didn't feel jumpy or jittery. I didn't feel like I needed to do something to get attention. My mind was quiet, calm, and peaceful." Giving Back. Going viral has connected Jonah with new friends around the world, introduced life-changing opportunities, and, importantly to Jonah, created a more significant platform for giving back, including to the community in Ethiopia from which he was adopted. Before Jonah concludes with his bright smile and signature wave, there are fourteen bonus pages celebrating crochet. Jonah offers an introduction to the art, lists his "Favorites," and reveals an exclusive pattern for an identity-inspired dish cloth, one that he hopes that his crochet friends will create (and share!). The sample Jonah provides is crocheted using the colors of the Ethiopian flag--red, yellow, and green. Written with the same confidence, sincerity, and kindness that Jonah's crochet friends will recognize from his online tutorials, Hello, Crochet Friends! offers its readers a celebration of a beautiful and powerful fiber art and another treasure from Jonah's hands.
