Would you like to be creative, but you keep thinking:
- I’m not formally trained

- I’m too old
- Someone I trusted told me I’m not any good
- I don’t have any original ideas
- I can’t because it’s not going to be perfect
If you think you’re disqualified from making art for these or any other reasons, this book is for you.

It's time to lose the hang-ups and dismantle the lies that are keeping you from making the art you want to make. No more apologizing. No more delays or excuses. Time to begin! The World Needs You to Make Art is a raw and authentic conversation with artist Becca Godfrey about lies we believe about ourselves that keep us from creating with confidence.
Godfrey, a self-taught abstract painter, brings readers on a journey back to the place where they created without fear of criticism. Drawing from her own struggles as well as those she's encountered in her art students (both children and adults), Godfrey goes all the way back to the first words recorded in the Bible.
In the artist’s words, "This book is not a technical guide to creating beautiful abstract paintings. Nor is it a how-to guide for branding yourself and starting an art business. The internet is rife with that type of information and most of it is free, if you look hard enough. I don’t have seven steps to a thriving art business. But, like Peter said in Acts 3:6, 'What I do have I give to you.' That is – an account of my journey from an unqualified, self-deprecating, apologetic artist to a confident and fully-equipped one, and the expectation that you can and will make that journey too."
