Summary You'll love this art book if: you want to learn about the Art Abandonment movement; you'd like ideas for monthly art prompts; you're looking for examples of abandoned art and the creative people who made it. The Art Abandonment Project by Michael deMeng and Andrea Matus deMeng explores the idea of expressing yourself through random acts of art. Art abandonment is creating something for the pleasure of making it, and then leaving it for an unsuspecting person to discover. Become an "abandoneer," and leave your art on a table at a coffee shop, at your local library, or anywhere else a stranger may come across it. Experience the joy of sharing art with others by connecting with the Art Abandonment community! This art book serves to not only introduce you to the Art Abandonment movement and how it works, but also to help inspire your works as an abandoneer. Enjoy art prompts in the form of monthly challenges, examples of art from other abandoneers in action, an exploration of alternative forms of art abandonment, and much more. Whether you've been an abandoneer for quite some time or are just starting out, this book is sure to help you open your mind to the freeing nature of art abandonment. In The Art Abandonment Project you'll find: ideas and inspiration for monthly abandoning challenges; examples of abandoned art, and stories of the artists as well as the "finders"; helpful encouragement for letting go of your creations.--Publisher description.
