9781452596945: Finding Freedom to Create: A Painter's Roadmap

Travel with Dianne Mize as she takes you on a journey to your inner artist and guides you with practical ways to set aside struggle and enjoy being the creative individual that you know you are. Mize inserts tutorials and brain teasers among philosophical ideals and psychological certainties as she compares the processes in the visual arts with music and shows parallels in an array of pursuits using examples from Mozart to Danica Patrick. She explores in depth how the composing principles artists use are direct reflections of a healthy human psychology as well as the organizing energy that keeps nature and the universe working. Whether you are just beginning or already proficient as an artist, Finding Freedom to Create provides an enlightening guide to help you find confidence in your inner voice and tap into solid resources that can aid you on the way to artistic wholeness.

About the Author:

Dianne Mize is a lifelong artist and has been a teacher of painting and drawing for the past fifty years. She began as a high school teacher in Visual Art and English. Later she taught in Georgia's Governor's Honors Program for six years, having chaired the Visual Arts program for four of those. She chaired the Department of Visual Art at Piedmont College for ten years before co-founding with her life-partner, the late Dr. Howard G. Hanson, the Dianne Mize Studio, where she taught until her retirement in 2007. Dianne holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in Painting and received an undergraduate minor in music. Music has been as important to her as painting. During her years in Governor's Honors, she devised a course called The Creative Process exploring how all creative acts flow through a similar process of becoming manifest even though the results might be vastly different. Her investigations in the creative process confirmed her teaching philosophy of Individual Uniqueness asserting that when an individual is responding from his or her deepest innermost self, the results will be unique no matter their subject or genre. It is her insistence on claiming this uniqueness that has been the trademark of her teaching methods. Dianne lives in the foothills of the Appalachians in Northeast Georgia with her schnauzer, Maggie. She continues to paint, write, play her hammered dulcimer and enjoy the mysteries of nature that surround her.
