I definitely would not buy this; get it from the library, if you must. Otherwise, 52 not very creative ideas for dates, most of which include buying things, or were items re-hashed: make guacamole; make soup; bake a pie—these were three separate ideas, not one. So much fluff and filler. Disappointing—or, it would have been had I had any expectations whatsoever.

Nice and precise

Julia gave simple ideas that are easy to implement. She has a very easily read, quotable flow. The slight weakness in the artist date options were what gave the book its strength as well: simple, which in this case .

Another one of her books that I just thoroughly enjoyed. I don't consider myself an artist, but I think I would enjoy my life more living as one. That might also show me that I'm wrong...lots of ways to define being an artist. These books are helping me find mine. ...more

Ideas!

Who doesn't love ideas/help when venturing out and trying something new? I've been reading Julia Cameron's books for more than 20 years, but I am finally going to attempt to give the Basics real effort rather than halfies it. I'm ready!! 💛

I bought this as a companion to The Artist's Way. I've found it helpful to flip through when I can't think of an Artist Date. It is somewhat repetitive, but all it truly needs to do is inspire and that it does. ...more

Everyone who considers themselves an artist should read and do as this book says. Artist Dates are food for the soul. And the bonus chapters in the end are priceless. Your kids will thank you.
