About The Book For Performers, Writers, and Visual Artists. “The Elements of Creative and Expressive Artistry: A Philosophy for Creating Everything Artistic” is an all-artist guide which identifies the nine root elements common to all artistic fields and explains their significance in creating expressive art. This book is for adult and young adult performers, writers, and visual artists. “The Elements of Creative and Expressive Artistry” uses hundreds of relevant examples, citations, and quotations from prominent art professionals, philosophers, scientists, past and present, to support over 40 chapters. Through warm and insightful narrative, Hemphill offers advice from painters, sculptors, dancers, choreographers, actors, film directors, musicians, teachers, psychologists, scientists, philosophers, and critics, writing on all forms of art, including visual arts, literary arts, dramatic arts, musical arts, dance arts, and hybrid art forms. For Advanced Artists, Teachers, and Critics. For advanced artists, critics, and teachers looking to understand artistic depth and nuance, “The Elements of Creative and Expressive Artistry” presents 36 additional elements branching from the nine root elements and suggests other avenues for artistic investigation and development. For Non-Artists Art Lovers. Although mainly written for the artist and arts professional, the non-artist who has a general love for art will also gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of art.
