Art and Fear – Audio

The following chapters of Art and Fear: Observations on the Perils (and Rewards) of Artmaking, by David Bayles and Ted Orland have been recorded for educational purposes only. Please know that the copyright of the book belongs to the authors and, as an art educator, I extend my most heartfelt gratitude to them for their understanding of my recording to aid students who might need a bit of extra help. I feel that their writing helps everyone who is invested in the making of, looking at, and appreciation (or not) of art understand all the challenges and rewards that art has to offer. Please forgive any errors in pronunciation (names especially), word omissions, or other errors, I am human. Go buy their book – it is a great art (life) changer!
