“I think on some mystical level that Jan Stewart and Corita Kent were joined at the tip in the creation of Learning by Heart. The mystery of life is apparent in the creative expression of their work together”—Bob Bates, Co-founder, Inner-City Arts

Artist and educator Corita Kent inspired generations of artists, and the truth of her words "We can all talk, we can all write, and if the blocks are removed, we can all draw and paint and make things" still shines through.

This revised edition of her classic work Learning by Heart features a new foreword and a chart of curriculum standards. Kent's original projects and exercises, developed through more than 30 years as an art teacher and richly illustrated with 300 thought-provoking images, are as inspiring and as freeing today as they were during her lifetime.

With new material by art world heavyweights Susan Friel and Barbara Loste, Learning by Heart brings creative inspiration into the 21st century!
