The Art Process & Why I Love Working With Children!
As art makers we have so much to learn from children. They intuitively know how to engage in the PROCESS of making art. Its an experience for them, a journey, not an end product.
In this art lesson I played a whole lot of different music and gave them chalks and paper and let them just react to the music. Look what came out! Not one child didn’t know how to begin. Not one child asked if they were doing it “right”. Not one child said that they didn’t like what they were doing. They were full engaged in THE ART PROCESS. That is why I love working with children and why I call my studio THE ART PROCESS. I want all adults to be inspired by this idea. Making art is a journey of self discovery and when we can let go of the end product, we are surprised at what comes out.
