Get Messy Art: The No-Rules, No-Judgment, and No-Pressure Approach to Making Art – Create with Watercolor, Acrylic, Markers, Inks, and More

We rated this book:


The definition of an artist is someone who makes art. It doesn’t have to be perfect or even good. The messy artist is a role that encourages someone to step outside the box and find freedom in questioning how the world defines perfection. Get Messy Art pushes artists to reject the idea of perfection through a guide to creating messy art according to the six creative pillars: mess, habit, community connection, inspiration, enthusiasm, and kindness.

This is an art-based guidebook that encourages readers to leave perfection behind and embrace their inner artist through community, creativity, and connection. The book focuses on messy art journals that are easy to employ at your own convenience with ideas, steps, and full-colored photographs. It’s empowering and inspiring to find a book that is based on being messy, original, and community-orientated with heavy doses of encouragement to enlist other artists to help create art.

The go-to techniques, color mixing methods, guest artist interviews, and step-by-step instructions deliver a unique art experience in Get Messy Art that will have you stepping out of your comfort zone and into the messy middle.
