Explore mindfulness and self-expression by enjoying your surroundings on long weekends, vacations, or wherever you happen to be.

In this guidebook, artist Courtney Cerruti provides her tool kit for capturing the essence of a place and your personal impression of everything you see. From a five-minute blind contour of a cup of coffee to an hour-long review of a cityscape, the guidebook is filled with ideas for finding opportunities to draw, make marks, and paint while you are on the move. Each activity includes the estimated time needed to finish, a unique feature that helps you find a moment for art-making in your travel itinerary and your daily life.

Whether you are an experienced artist looking for a new perspective or an aspiring creative who needs some guidance, Make Art Where You Are empowers you to enjoy the mindful practice of observing and recording your experiences.
