See Dean Nimmer’s new book, Creating Abstract Art, Ideas and Inspirations for Passionate Art Making, now available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Wal-Mart and bookstores across the country.
*NOTE: Due to logistics and time constraints, I’m unable to continue offering my books for sale on my websites. After I fill the orders placed as of December 20, 2014, I will no longer offer my books or artworks for sale. Please purchase my books at your local book store or on Amazon. I still give out original mini-drawings at book signings and my workshops.
Creating Abstract Art is the best selling art book in the United States and Europe right now and that excitement is in just in pre-sales before the book appeared in bookstores on October 3.
With over 6,000 copies sold, booksellers large and small have picked it up across the country, including Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Walmart. It is completely unheard of for an art book to sell that many copies before it’s release date, says the publisher, North Light Books. The book also achieved a 4.9 of 5-star rating on Amazon with RAVE reviews from readers who left comments such as – “Brilliant!” – “Lightening in a bottle!” – “A must have!” – “The real deal!” – “Inspiring!” – “Go for it!”
I know that many of you already wrote seller comments about the book, but at least half the other reviews are by people I don’t know at all, and that’s very gratifying!
In another piece of good news, I’ve been selected as the 2015 Massachusetts Art Education Association Community Arts Educator of the Year in recognition of my “Significant contribution to the field of Art Education in Massachusetts. “ I will receive this award at the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston in a ceremony on November 8th that’s free and open to the public.
Best Wishes, Dean

About Art from Intuition
What happens when an artist becomes blocked or is searching for new ideas for his or her work? In his book, Art From Intuition, Dean Nimmer draws on his 38 years as a dynamic and skilled art educator to offer new paths to overcome barriers and be fully engaged in the process of making art. With over 60 innovative exercises – painting blindfolded, drawing moving figures, composing with candle smoke – this book motivates the reader to step beyond traditional techniques to find their own original artistic voice.
“Art from Intuition is a gem of a book and one of the best guides that I have read for those hoping to initiate and sustain the practice of artistic expression.”
Shaun McNiff – Artist, teacher and author of Trust the Process and many books on creativity.
“This book is just excellent and I will be recommending it to my students and colleagues constantly! This is the gold standard, as far as I am concerned – not just for artists but for anyone who wants to enrich his or her life through art making.
