Your Art Will Save Your Life by Beth Pickens

14.95

Claire’s Pick: While I always want to love motivational books, I find that my inherently skeptical nature often holds me back from getting the full potential out of the genre. Your Art Will Save Your Life is the antidote to that problem. Instead of an idealistic artist’s manifesto, Beth Pickens offers practical, grounded advice for artists and writers who need to pursue their creative endeavors while still paying rent, socializing, and remaining politically engaged. She offers just the right amount of exercises and resources to be helpful but not overwhelming. If I was the kind of person who highlights books, I would have highlighted every page. That’s how necessary this book is.  

About the book: As a teenager visiting the Andy Warhol Museum, Beth Pickens realized the importance of making art. As an adult, she has dedicated her life to empowering working artists. Intimate yet practical, Your Art Will Save Your Life helps artists build a sustainable practice while navigating the world of MFAs, residencies, and institutional funding.
