  • 101 Things to Learn in Art School (MIT Press Essential Knowledge)

    By Kit White

    Artist and teacher Kit White delivers and develops essential lessons, striking an instructive balance between technical advice and sage concepts. This book’s 101 maxims, meditations, and demonstrations offer both a toolkit of ideas for the art student and a set of guiding principles for the artist. Complementing each of the 101 succinct texts is an equally expressive drawing by the artist, often based on a historical or contemporary work of art, offering a visual correlative to the written thought. For example, “Art can be anything” is illustrated by a drawing of Marcel Duchamp’s notoriously immortalized urinal. There’s advice about the issues artists confront across all artistic media, but this is no simple handbook to making art. It is a guide to understanding art as a description of the world we live in, and it is a guide to using art as a medium for thought. 101 illustrations. 224p.
