Open Studio

Phaidon

£59.95

Open Studio invites you into the private studios of seventeen of the most celebrated contemporary artists as they draw, paint, sculpt, or design an original project for readers to recreate at home. Join George Condo as he creates a paint-by-numbers portrait, William Wegman as he watercolors whimsical scenes of his beloved Weimaraners, and Mickalene Thomas as she makes an artist's book out of collage.

Open Studio demystifies the studio practice through fun, accessible, D.I.Y. projects. The book provides a suggested list of supplies, illustrated step-by-step instructions, pull-out templates and stencils, and essential elements - no special skills or previous art experience required! The result is sure to inspire kids and adults alike to blaze their own creative trails.

Each entry also includes a brief profile of the artist, exploring how they came to love art, their unique creative methodologies, and the sources of their inspiration, along with original photography of the artists in their studios.
