From the Author:

These are strategies that have been proved in a dozen online courses with over 600 participants.Honor your inner Artist by engaging the Rebel and dismantling the Committee and then join me in an energizing, self-esteem building search for your own personal sense of "alignment" and distinctive work. You'll not regret it!

From the Back Cover:

Into a world of bookshelves lined with self-help guides to overhauling ourselves, Jane Dunnewold gives us, instead, a way to discover ourselves. Creative Strength Training is a gift to the artist just starting out, and a powerful resource for those of us who feel like we may have grown stale. In that wise and gentle voice I've heard her use so often with me, Jane replaces our fears -- that we are not really creative, not really good enough - with the happy confidence that, in fact, we are creative. We are more than good enough.

Mary Fisher, Artist and AIDS Activist

Jane Dunnewold outlines a step by step strategy for overcoming artistic inertia.  Her approach will resonate with anyone who has ever been stymied in their attempt to be original and creative.  She guides the reader on a journey of self-discovery by encouraging journaling of past experiences including an individual's work process and personal passions.  In essence, Dunnewold helps reveal the core of her reader's creative spirit.  This newfound self-awareness and confidence is sure to unleash brand new avenues of creativity for those who read this important new work.   
Maureen Hendricks, owner of Gateway Canyons Resort, home of Alegre Quilt Retreat
Jane Dunnewold's approach to the creative process is as refreshing as it is realistic - building stamina means making your art a priority. This method feels at once personal and prolific - a must-have for anyone looking to push their boundaries and further their practice.

Book Description FW Publications Inc, United States, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Just as an athletic coach expects to see significant physical growth from players in ten weeks, the reader of Artist Strength Training can expect impressive results in her creative stamina in just ten weeks as well. Ten chapters address such things as how to generate stamina, overcoming resistance, making distinctive and individualized work, dismantling the Committee (that group of inner critics), discovering grace through small acts of making, writing a new version of the traditional artist statement and determining what the reader needs to keep showing up daily to create meaningful work. In addition, each chapter also includes creative exercises and tips to encourage exploration of the exercises from several angles. Finally, for additional inspiration and encouragement, six contributing artists will be seen going through the entire process, too, sharing how each has improved and evolved (including progressive examples of their artwork).
