The Creative Habit
This a great book for an artist that finds herself in a funk, unable to access the creative juices. There are provocative questions and very interesting exercises to dislodge any stuck-ness. Twyla Tharp is a dancer and choreographer but has many approaches in her language to reach each artist no matter what medium their creativity is expressed through...equally good for painters, writers, sculptors, musicians, poets, actors, singers, comedians, photographers, and any creative vehicle style an artist has chosen.
She presents an exercise (among many) to help the artist find their deep rooted, DNA hard wired, implanted creative approach, so artists interested in many mediums can cut to the chase and dig into the medium they can express through with the greatest impact and absorb the greatest nourishment from...soul food.
