Volume 1 reveals the methods and tricks of the trade that painters and illustrators
employ to create their work. David Hockney, Wayne Thiebaud, Matt Groening (creator

Volume 2 focuses on theatre, sculpture and photography, as Julie Taymor (director
of the Broadway hit The Lion King, and feature films Titus and Frida), sculptor
Nancy Graves and photographer Carrie Mae Weems share their craft. William Wegman
adds to the fun with his playful Weimaraner dogs!
Volume 3 features the noted dancer and choreographer David Parsons, the conductor
JoAnn Falletta, and the musicians Max Roach and Allen Toussaint as it explores
the world of music and dance. Grammy winner Bobby McFerrin helps out too.
