My apologies to those of you who have viewed The 10-Minute Artist eBook and found it was sold out. We had a broken link but it has been corrected now and the  book is available again in my Shoppe.

I regret any inconvenience this may have caused.

Carol Taylor

each YEAR!

–       A practical guide to making time for making ART for those who are not full-time artists, i.e., those who teach, work in advertising or marketing, manage museums or galleries, or have careers in various other professions.

–       Will show you that ART experiences are cumulative… that you can make entire ARTworks by working just 10 minutes at a time.

–       Although written from the viewpoint of an artist who makes drawings, this book is applicable to any ART pursuit.

–       If you simply haven’t found the time to make ART, this book is for you!
