About the Author

Cat Bennett is an artist who has taught drawing to adults for ten years in her Saturday Morning Drawing Club. Even those who came to the club having not drawn since childhood have gone on to make, exhibit and sell art, some in galleries, shops and museum shop settings. Cat was previously an illustrator for 25 years.

Reviews

"Accomplished professional illustrator and art teacher Bennett (The Confident Creative) has led a productive drawing club for over ten years. Here she shares everything readers need to know to start their own club. Resembling a book club more than a traditional art workshop class, a drawing club has a free and supportive atmosphere that is conducive to experimentation. The author declares, 'Mistakes are okay, in life and in art,' which is a guiding principle behind this volume. The first half explains the virtues of exploring creativity together with other artists and provides detailed tips about how one might start and run a drawing club. The rest of the book presents exercises in three, eight-week sessions that are intended to launch a new club and inspire ideas throughout its first year. VERDICT This social and collective approach to stretching individual visual creativity will appeal to many readers and can be adopted by artists of all skill levels." * Library Journal *
"Offering a complete course of instruction under one cover, The Drawing Club of Improbable Dreams is exceptionally 'user friendly' and informative in content, commentary, organization, and presentation. Beautifully illustrated throughout, The Drawing Club of Improbable Dreams is very highly recommended for art class curriculum supplemental studies reading lists, as well as community and academic library collections." * Helen Dumont, Midwest Book Review *
