You Are an Artist Assignments to Spark Creation by Sarah Urist Green

What might it be like to be in an art class being taught by some of the greatest artists alive today? Well, it would be a lot like reading You Are an Artist! Former museum curator and current host of the PBS Digital Studios series “The Art Assignment” has spoken to a wide range of artists, asking them about their work and their process and having them create art assignments for the audience to complete. The assignments range from sculptural (like “Embarrassing Object”) to performance (“Become a Sci-Fi Character”) to photographic (“Sorted Books”) to textile (“Make a Rug”), are usually flexible in terms of medium, and require no formal artistic skill. Combining full-color pictures of contemporary art; art history; and a variety of fun, thoughtful, and inspiring project ideas, this book is perfect for artists both practiced and emerging.

Mending Life: A Handbook for Repairing Clothes and Hearts by Nina Montenegro & Sonya Montenegro

The Montenegro sisters have given us a wonderful gift. Among the many books on mending and upcycling that are coming out right now, Mending Life is definitely a standout. The Montenegros cover mending techniques for a wide range of materials and share their touching personal connection to mending and thrift clothing. The art inside is gorgeous and evocative, with the feel of having been hand-drawn only a few minutes ago. Mend your clothes, mend your connection to other people and the planet.
