CREATIVE FOUNDATIONS: Essentials for Artistic Understanding 

Art belongs to everyone. 
Creativity is a fundamental human characteristic.
Artistic theory can be learned. 
Techniques can be mastered.
Creativity can be cultivated.  
These truths inspired me to create a guide for people who wanted access to a seemingly inaccessible world. This book provides the foundational information necessary to build your own visual language. Creative Foundations presents art theory in a clear, concise way. It removes the mystery and shares the basics, including Framework & Art Elements, Seeing & Drawing, 2D Design & Analysis, Color Theory, 3D Design, and a comprehensive glossary. Learn the basics to establish a strong foundation allowing creative exploration in any direction.
