From there, she works through the eight principles of design a chapter at a time, using exercises like leaf rubbing, dream collages, clay charades, magazine mosaics, and so on. As I said earlier, I seriously feel that this book might work in a group setting - especially with children. But as an individual seeking to get "creatively fit," I couldn't get behind the "touchy-feely" aspects of the approach.
If you're looking for a book about inspiring your own creativity and aren't working in a group, I'd avoid Whitney Ferré's book The Artist Within: A Guide to Becoming Creatively Fit and look for The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron. If you're looking at a book to serve as a pattern for an art class for children or adults, Ferré's book might be just what you're looking for, but it didn't work for me.
