About “The Creative Process Book” Call For Art:

“The Creative Process Book” is an annual global call for contemporary art, dedicated to discovering, recognizing, and providing long-term support to emerging women artists. Introduced by the Arts to Hearts Project in 2024, this marks the inaugural edition of our publication.

“The Creative Process Book” is a special book that tells the stories of 100 women artists and how they make their art. It’s all about showing people the steps and thoughts that go into making something creative, from the very start to the finished piece. This book is the first of its kind and aims to celebrate how different and interesting the world of art can be. It gives a peek into the artists’ world, showing the hard work, love, and different ways they create their art. This book starts a yearly tradition to share these stories with everyone.

Women artists aged 18 or beyond from all over the world are welcome to share their art and stories in this book. It offers them a big chance to show their work to people everywhere. “The Creative Process Book” doesn’t just show their art; it also tells their personal stories of how they got inspired, the challenges they faced, and how they succeeded. The goal of the book is to support artists by giving them a place to show what they do and encourage them to keep following their dreams. This way, the book helps to build a community where everyone appreciates art and understands the hard work and beauty behind it.

“The Creative Process Book” is a special book that shares the stories of 100 women artists and how they make their art. It’s not just about the art they end up making, but also about their feelings, thoughts, and the effort it takes to create something. This book aims to show the wide variety of ways artists come up with and bring their art to life.

It takes you from the quiet places where painters work to the busy spots where digital artists create, giving you a sneak peek into what goes on behind the scenes. This book celebrates creativity, showing how artists think and turn their ideas into real pieces of art that are beautiful and meaningful.

But this book is more than just stories and pictures. It’s part of a bigger idea to help people understand all the different ways creativity happens. Every women artist in the book tells their own story, showing how much they love art and the different ways they make their ideas come to life. From getting inspired to every step of making their art, this book lets you see how imagination becomes real.

“The Creative Process Book” is made to inspire, teach, and bring people together. It’s for artists looking for others who understand them, for students who want to learn from experienced artists, and for anyone who loves art. This book is here to show everyone the power of art and the strong spirit of the artists who share their visions with us. It highlights why it’s important to support artists and help them feel confident in following their dreams.

My journey with Arts to Hearts Project has been nothing short of surprising and deeply rewarding. While I continue to harbor reservations about participating in competitions relying on public votes, my experience with Arts to Hearts Project has indeed been filled with surprises and gratitude. Initially cautious, I was taken aback by the rule changes introducing a public vote component.

Despite my reservations, the overwhelming support received, securing the highest number of votes, has left me pleasantly surprised and deeply thankful to everyone who appreciated my Soul!
