    • I found this book truly inspirational Art educators who are interested in developing a creative learning environment will benefit from the problems in this book Corita Kent is to teaching creativity as Betty Edwards is to teaching drawing.


    • I was introduced to Sister Corita Kent by Risa D Angeles who I follow on Facebook and who writes an Astrology column for Good Times Santa Cruz.When I read on Risa s page that there was a Corita exhibition Someday is Now The Art of Corita Kent at the Pasadena Museum of California Art on June 29, 2015 I made sure to visit since I lived in Los Angeles at the Time That was the first time that I bought this particular book of Sister Corita s at the Museum gift shop I LOVED the book It has a little bi [...]


    • Disclaimer I am a huge fan of Corita Kent, the female Andy Warhol This book is about releasing, supporting the burgeoning artist, but I think that it goes beyond that Much like THE RULES that were posted in her classrooms, Sr Corita has provided a clear path to educating and supporting students A blue print for allowing them, encouraging them to think, work and grow into adults capable of critical thinking and a vision for a future different than ours.


    • A book perfect for the artist in you There were so many good prompts, it ll be a book I refer back to time and again.



    • Maybe 2.7 It s difficult to review this book since it s really a workbook or even a guide for an art class There are a few dozen projects that would take a long time to complete It s a lot time required than you have with have a borrowed library book It would be cool to do some of these exercises A few of them reminded me of an art book I read a couple of years ago It s all about making art from different perspectives and with unusual techniques and tools A few of these were already on my todo [...]


    • Corita Kent was a Catholic nun who taught art in California is an unusual way She assumed everyone is creative and everyone wants to explore who they are and what they know and don t know She encouraged exploration, invented projects and delighted her students with surprises about themselves The book is not new, but has many new and refreshing ideas about exploring art, creativity, design, Sr Corita was a graphic designer as well and building a creative community A good read on many levels You c [...]


    • This book was written by a student of the artist and art teacher Corita Kent, who died in 1986 She taught art at Immaculate Heart College in California, and her students still offer occasional workshops Her philosophy was that art is a part of life, and we re all artists We become artists when we care about something anything , because when we care about something, we put our hearts into it, and naturally want to do whatever it is beautifully She might not have phrased it quite like that The boo [...]


    • This isn t really the sort of book you read much It s the sort of book you DO, which is why I need to buy myself a copy and dive into the work Loads of wonderful exercises and suggestions here, with passages from Corita alternating with passages from Jan Steward, one of her students at Immaculate Heart of Mary College Since she s no longer around to teach art classes, it s a wonderful thing that Corita has left us this book to play with.


    • Only partway through, started last year and find I need to take small portions and assimilate, like how you would eat a mountain of baklava But this might be the best guide to cultivating curiosity ever.
