The Drawing Club of Improbable Dreams shows how to create a drawing club to work with fellow artists to build skills and find our own genius. In the club we make art experiments and the bold mistakes that free us from unnecessary limitations. We also reap the benefit of witnessing how others solve problems. Inside are full instructions on how to start and run a club as well as three 8-week session plans with specific art explorations. The purpose of the explorations we make is not only to build drawing skills but also to build the qualities of curiosity, courage, and critical thinking we need for making art. We will learn how to work from the inside out to make art that is fresh, vital and authentic. The book offers two important rules that will help us be the unique artists we are meant to be. As artists we dream that we might make something fantastic and be fully who we are. We dream that art matters, even that it might change the world. Improbable dreams but, in a club, things start to happen that we didn’t imagine possible. Working together we discover strength we might not have on our own. A club can take us to places we hardly dared to dream of and can show us how improbable dreams are where our hearts are truly meant to be.
