Book Club Thursdays

Today begins a new series for me. I will be sharing a book that has inspired me. This week I am sharing the book Creative Pilgrimage: An Exploration of Artful Gatherings and Discovery of Innovative Art Techniques
by Jenny Doh. I really have enjoyed this book. I purchased it because I wanted to learn about how different artists teach and what inspired them to teach. I really think that it was well worth the money.
 Here is the Amazon Book Description:

"Join 14 very special artists on a Creative Pilgrimage as they share exciting projects that they teach through the various art retreat venues from across the nation. As they teach their special projects, we experience what it's like to learn from this celebrated cohort of talented artists. Hear their unique perspectives about the importance of teaching—a process where through sharing knowledge, they also gain knowledge and develop community. Featured artists include:
—Alisa Burke
—Julie Haymaker Thompson
—Lisa Kaus
—Mary Beth Shaw
—Maya Donenfeld
—Roxanne Padgett
—Sarah Ahearn Bellemare
—Stephanie Jones Rubiano
—Tracie Lyn Huskamp
—Heather Smith Jones
—Carla Sonheim
—Mati Rose McDonough
—Alma Stoller
—Flora Bowley
Peppered throughout the book are snapshots that give us a glimpse of some of the most amazing art retreats from across the nation. They are:
—Squam Art Workshops
—The Makerie
—An Artful Journey
—Artistic Bliss
—Valley Ridge Art Studio
—Art & Soul
—Silver Bella
You'll get a special behind-the-scenes look at these special gatherings from the unique points of view of the coordinators, students, and instructors alike.
Take a leap of faith into your quest to learn, teach, grow, and create with Creative Pilgrimage!"

I was so excited to read about each of these artist that I could not put it down until I had read it from cover to cover.
