Open Studio invites you into the private studios of seventeen of the most celebrated contemporary artists as they draw, paint, sculpt, or design an original project for readers to recreate at home. Join George Condo as he creates a paint-by-numbers portrait, William Wegman as he watercolours whimsical scenes of his beloved Weimaraners, and Mickalene Thomas as she makes an artist's book out of collage.
Open Studio demystifies the studio practice through fun, accessible, D.I.Y. projects. The book provides a suggested list of supplies, illustrated step-by-step instructions, pull-out templates and stencils, and essential elements - no special skills or previous art experience required! The result is sure to inspire kids and adults alike to blaze their own creative trails.
Participating artists include: Marina Abramovic, George Condo, Will Cotton, John Currin, Thomas Demand, Rachel Feinstein, The Haas Brothers, Alex Israel, Rashid Johnson, KAWS, Maya Lin, Julie Mehretu, Wangechi Mutu, Mickalene Thomas, Sarah Sze, William Wegman, and Lawrence Weiner.
