Art One-on-One Reflecting On Your Life Through Art brings together the illuminating process of journal writing and the limitless curiosity of art. What is beauty? Where do we look to find inspiration? Why is an old, compassionate face so impossible to ignore? Art asks questions. Art One-On-One discusses these questions and many more while starting you on your journey through Western art, from prehistoric cave art to Van Gogh's lasting legacy. The compelling themes of art then point the palette your way, asking you to reflect on and write about questions like: What does the Divine look like to you? What is your iconography? How do the lines and light in your home affect your energy and mood? How does your body reveal the state of your soul? Based on the author's many years of teaching college Art Appreciation courses, this guided journal makes art personal, offering a broader perspective on the intimate role that art can play in each of our lives. As art tells "its" story, it reminds us to look closer at our own story and the wonder of our daily lives. Mona Lisa is waiting with questions for you! Book jacket.
