    Creative Art: Methods and Materials educates readers about a variety of art methods and the ways different civilizations have used them in artistic expression. Each of the fourteen chapters is designed around a specific art method and material, and includes examples of art works and the artists who created them.

    Students learn about bronze casting, stone carving, clay sculpture, woodcuts and posters, glass work, and installation art. Each method is matched to artists both ancient and modern. Rather than adhering to a standard approach that focuses on white, male, European artists, the book broadens the student's perspective by including often overlooked female artists.

    Global in approach and comprehensive in coverage of arts forms, representations, and styles throughout history, Creative Art has been developed for sixteen-week courses in art appreciation, or introductory survey courses in art history.

    Dr. Deborah Gustlin is a faculty member of Evergreen Valley College. She holds a master’s in art education from the University of Florida and an educational leadership doctorate from Saint Mary’s College of California.
    Zoe Gustlin is a retired vice president of IBM. She received her bachelor’s degree in art from San Diego State University and her master’s degree in art education from San Jose State University.
