Drawing from Within is an introductory guide for those wanting to explore the use of art with clients with eating disorders. Art therapy is a particularly effective therapeutic intervention for this group, as it allows them to express uncomfortable thoughts and feelings through artistic media rather than having to explain them verbally. Lisa D. Hinz outlines the areas around which the therapist can design effective treatment programmes, covering family influences, body image, self-acceptance, problem solving and spirituality. Each area is discussed in a separate chapter and is accompanied by suggestions for exercises, with advice on materials to use and how to implement them. Case examples show how a therapy programme can be tailored to the individual client and photographs of client artwork illustrate the text throughout. Practical and accessible to practitioners at all levels of experience, this book gives new hope to therapists and other mental health professionals who want to explore the potential of using art with clients with eating disorders.

Experienced artist Lance Richlin begins by explaining drawing tools and materials, shading techniques, and the important anatomical structures of the head.

Drawing is at the very forefront of contemporary art practice. The radical shift in the treatment and development of drawing since the 1960s has resulted in a renewed status and relevance for it within current practice, with some of the most exciting artistic ideas of the last fifty years indebted to its use. This brand new study into contemporary drawing structures itself around three broad subjects: abstraction and drawing, looking at the way drawing really came into its own at a time when notions of art and the employment of media were radically challenged; drawing as narrative, borrowing and developing ideas on illustration and cartoon art, and investigating the use of drawing with the moving image; and drawing as engagement, with its role in offering a visual description of our environment, as well as the notion of its own physical presence, particularly in relationship to landscape. Including work by artists such as Agnes Martin, Richard Serra, Philip Guston, Raymond Pettibon, Alison Wilding, Robin Rhode, Xu Bing, Gordon Matta-Clarke and Richard Long, the book explores how practitioners have addressed and redefined notions of medium specificity in relation to drawing, and how it has been particularly significant for artists pursuing an interdisciplinary practice. Katharine Stout contextualises the medium within history and with the current treatment of drawing by theoreticians, institutions, the art market, and education systems, concluding that drawing is a popular, diverse and ever evolving medium.--Tate Publishing.

The first university-level textbook on the power, condition, and expanse of contemporary fine art drawing A Companion to Contemporary Drawing explores how 20th and 21st century artists have used drawing to understand and comment on the world. Presenting contributions by both theorists and practitioners, this unique textbook considers the place, space, and history of drawing and explores shifts in attitudes towards its practice over the years. Twenty-seven essays discuss how drawing emerges from the mind of the artist to question and reflect upon what they see, feel, and experience. This book discusses key themes in contemporary drawing practice, addresses the working conditions and context of artists, and considers a wide range of personal, social, and political considerations that influence artistic choices. Topics include the politics of eroticism in South American drawing, anti-capitalist drawing from Eastern Europe, drawing and conceptual art, feminist drawing, and exhibitions that have put drawing practices at the centre of contemporary art. This textbook: Demonstrates ways contemporary issues and concerns are addressed through drawing Reveals how drawing is used to make powerful social and political statements Situates works by contemporary practitioners within the context of their historical moment Explores how contemporary art practices utilize drawing as both process and finished artifact Shows how concepts of observation, representation, and audience have changed dramatically in the digital era Establishes drawing as a mode of thought Part of the acclaimed Wiley Blackwell Companions to Art History series, A Companion to Contemporary Drawing is a valuable text for students of fine art, art history, and curating, and for practitioners working within contemporary fine art practice.
