The Drawing Club Book


Happy to report that I’m almost done with my new book, The Drawing Club of Improbable Dreams, about how to start and run a drawing club. It’s based on the club I’ve led for the last 10 years just outside Boston at The Arsenal Center for the Arts. It started as a regular drawing class but when we embraced radical support for each person surprising things began to happen. Everyone learned to draw in interesting ways, for one. Better still, we found a wonderful community and a sanctuary on Saturday mornings for wild creative exploration. Some really fine things have come from that.

It’s been such a wonderful and interesting project. And intense too. Most of the book has been done in the last six months which is fast for a book like this. Once again, many thanks to my publisher Thierry Bogliolo at Findhorn Press without whose warm support this book couldn’t be as freewheeling as it is. I’m now in the final days of making and choosing art for the book and inserting it into the design. It’s looking great and we are truly stretching the boundaries of how we can think of drawing. And art too, I hope.

In two weeks, the book will be off to the publisher in France! Out in bookstores in August!
