This book is about creativity and is written to encourage & inspire each of us to find and nurture our own unique art!
Art Nurture: The Book
Because finding your own unique art to nurture and cultivating that in your life is a beautiful thing!
If you want to learn more about my personal story and the history of Art Nurture, check out my blog!
With the confidence and support of you, the backers, this project will come to life!
The funding from awesome backers, such as yourself, will go into the:
Graphic Design, Layout, Illustrations & Editing of the Book
The actual Printing of Art Nurture: The Book
Everyone who backs this project will, in addition to the rewards mentioned already, be invited to the book release party which will take place in Asheville, NC on Saturday, March 30th!
My vision for this book is that it would it go out into the world and benefit people's lives. I also hope that as a result of this book, that a supportive community would be come together for one another as we all journey together to nurture ourselves and our creativity.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The design process is challenging & I am thankful to have found a few great people to help me with this project. I will be enlisting the expertise of an illustrator & cover designer who will also do the final layout. Since they will be translating my content into computer format and there will be a great deal of back and forth dialogue, making certain that the final Art Nurture book is filled with inspiration that is clear & easy to read. The fear is always that the project wont happen or wont be successful, but my belief is that this content is incredibly important. I believe that we each have a unique art to nurture for ourselves & to give to the world and I hope that this process and this book will help others catch the fire and begin nourishing their creativity as an integrated part of their lives.
