About the Book

In the tradition of Wild Mind, a guide to unleashing the artist in us all, by an icon in the women's creativity movement. Kent's work appeared in ads for IBM, on a U.S. stamp, on embassy walls, and in national museums worldwide, but it was as a master teacher that her work had the most influence. Now her teachings are gathered in this remarkable volume. Photos and drawings throughout.

Book Synopsis

Learn how to challenge fears, be open to new directions, recognize connections between objects and ideas, and much more in this remarkable, indispensable guide to freeing the creative spirit within all of us.

"I think on some mystical level that Jan Stewart and Corita Kent were joined at the tip in the creation of Learning by Heart. The mystery of life is apparent in the creative expression of their work together"--Bob Bates, Co-founder, Inner-City Arts

Artist and educator Corita Kent inspired generations of artists, and the truth of her words We can all talk, we can all write, and if the blocks are removed, we can all draw and paint and make things still shines through.

This revised edition of her classic work Learning by Heart features a new foreword and a chart of curriculum standards. Kent's original projects and exercises, developed through more than 30 years as an art teacher and richly illustrated with 300 thought-provoking images, are as inspiring and as freeing today as they were during her lifetime.

With new material by art world heavyweights Susan Friel and Barbara Loste, Learning by Heart brings creative inspiration into the 21st century!
