art book club reading list

Welcome to the library! This is a place where I list all of my favorite art-related reads. All of the following books I personally own and have read, and found them helpful in teaching various artsy topics.  They range from fun doodling inspirations to the nitty-gritty of the science behind paint. If you’re looking for resources to add to your own self-learning library, then you’ve come to the right place!

I will be reviewing all of these books in our Art Book Club video series, and books that I have already done videos on will have a link where you can watch the review to learn more about the book before making a decision whether or not it’ll meet your personal needs. This list will be updated as soon as I release any new ABC videos.

Once you’ve decided on a book, you can click the link to be taken to the Amazon page where you can find even more information about the book, and purchase it for yourself. Please note that these links to Amazon are affiliate links, and I will receive a small portion of any sale resulting from clicking them.  This is no extra cost to you, and it helps me keep this site running and the free tutorials coming, so thanks for your support <3

Now onto the books!

This list will grow as I’m always looking for my next good art book to try out, so keep checking back, and till next time, keep creating!
