The joy of this art journal book, "The Opposite Is Also True", is that you don't have to decide between 2 opposing opinions about how to go about making art. You get to try both ways and decide for yourself what works or doesn't. No longer do you have to be puzzled over which art teacher was right; one said to have a plan of action before you started and another said just start anywhere and flow with it. If you tried to figure out before you tried both ways, then you'll never know which is true for yourself. You'll never know that one is true in certain situations and the other is true in other situations. You could also go crazy with the conflicting messages. Just as likely, you could also become a better artist. See how we did that....we just gave you 2 opposing messages.
The images that illustrate the different messages are charming and fun. They really add another layer of play to a book that encourages artists to take a stab at something new and experiment with all the possibilities.
Should you need any art materials while working your ways through this playful art journal, you know you'll find the best art supplies with us. Make a no-contact, curbside pick-up order at this link.
