The Organic Artist is a hands-on book for artists who enjoy the process of making their own drawing tools. If you're interested in art, but find that it's becoming an increasingly expensive hobby, this is just the book for you.

This book encourages us all to return to those days when art was made with all-natural materials, such as charcoal and birch bark. In addition to offering a wide variety of suggestions for using nature as supplies for art, this book also introduces the concepts of awareness and perception that are foundational to the creative process. Readers will refine drawing skills, as well as increase their appreciation for the visual arts and the natural landscape. Some of the projects and skills covered include the following: making paper and wild ink, working with soapstone, clay, wood, and rawhide, printmaking and stencilling, natural pigments and dyes, camouflage and body painting, and nature journaling. The book also covers the making of charcoal, pens, inkwells, paint dishes, paintbrushes, pigments and paint, and crayons.

The Organic Artist is not only filled with beautiful images, but also contains easy to understand step-by-step instructions for the reader to follow, ensuring their success.
