Banyen's Description: 

In the tradition of The Artists Way, here’s an exciting program that introduces painting as a jumping-off point for realizing one’s full creative potential in all areas of life. Barry’s discipline of painting in a journal will allow you to continually reinvent yourself. So pick up your paintbrush and give yourself full permission to play!

Based on author Barbara Diane Barry’s popular course, Art for Self-Discovery, and supported by research in psychology and the science of brain function, Painting Your Way Out of a Corner guides readers through the process of overcoming blocks and expressing themselves freely in painting. Through a series of exercises that emphasize improvisation and risk-taking, readers will learn how to quiet their inner critics and strengthen their creativity. The more we learn to play and accept whatever appears on the page, the more we are able to try new things in life. Readers will be inspired by Barry’s delightful full-color paintings featured throughout the book.

“Barbara Barry provides a practical and workable solution to the most daunting problem for all those who yearn for self-expression through art: How to get started. Her prescriptions for painting as journal-keeping and her imaginative exercises show her stills as a teacher and her respectful empathy for the beginner’s fear of the blank page and the inner critic. So often, just getting going is the problem. This book will make you want to jump in.” —Betty Edwards, author of Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain

“Barbara Barry has developed an amazing method for opening the creative flow for anyone who wants to dip in and draw from deep water. Writers, poets, painters, chefs, designers, or anyone who wants to work from a creative center can let her be the guide.” —Linda Leonard, author of The Call to Create
