Kid's are fearless. Yes they can get nervous, aren't sure of themselves, or may be a bit timid towards art, but at the end of the day, when you put a brush in one of their hands, they will paint. They will blow you away with their raw creativity, because they just go with it. I may have blabbered-on for a few minutes about the project perimeters during a workshop, but they'll take it with a grain of salt, and have fun with it. And isn't that what art-making is all about?
This month I had the pleasure of visiting a local school here in Kingston, and painting the afternoon away with them! I was so inspired by the bright colours, and wild textures, and surprising results! If you ever need some creative inspiration, watch child make art, and you'll remember what it's all about.
