I recently purchased this children’s book, “The Book of Mistakes,” by Corinna Luyken on Amazon:
I must admit, the book TITLE grabbed my attention! And I wasn’t disappointed! 🙂 This is an excellent book for everyone at any age in my opinion.
We all make mistakes – I know I do, especially in art! Yet, I have learned that how I perceive a mistake in art making can make a difference…
Do I give up and throw away the art project or see it as an opportunity to learn something new?
Do I figure out how to make a mistake part of my design?
Or do I take a step away and later return to see possibilities instead of failure?
I hope you will google this author – Corinna Luyken.com and look up her Q and A for writing this book. Her drawings are wonderful too in her Portfolio!
What do you do when you make a mistake in art? I’d love to hear from you!
P.S. In tomorrow’s post I will show you how I changed a mistake into a possibility!
