Drawing Calm – Relax, Refresh, Refocus with 20 Drawing, Painting, and Collage Workshops Inspired by

Drawing Calm teaches artists and non-artists how to find an oasis of calm every day by using the work of master painters to inspire creativity.

Maybe it’s the colors, or the eye-widening vistas, or maybe it’s just the idea that harmony can exist on a square of canvas, but there is something in art that can calm and inspire at the same time.

In Drawing Calm, artist Susan Evenson, shows readers how to do the same. It’s a book for everyone—non-artists as well as those with plenty of experience in a studio. Using restful, but dynamic works of art as a starting point, Susan Evenson teaches how to capture the light and peace of the master painting. Making use of “soft” techniques such as torn-paper collage, blended pastels, and wet-on-wet watercolor, this workshop encourages stress-free creativity.
