The Zen of Art starts with the premise that making art is akin to what happens when wind engages with a set of chimes. The chance encounter of source and instrument generates a song that enriches and elevates the moment. Author and artist Carolyn Schlam draws a parallel with what she calls the “Zen of Art”—the process of allowing creative expression to manifest in a natural and unencumbered fashion. Schlam tells her personal story of making art while applying the knowledge she has gained to live an “artful life” in chapters on courage, joy, beauty, love, and more. Whether practicing artists or not, readers will be encouraged to examine their own lives in the context of her insights. There is much to ponder and savor in this beautifully written, wise, and warm account of a life filled with art. The Zen of Art is a book to treasure as it paints a pathway to being your best self and living your best life.
