 A few weeks ago I taught an acrylic painting class and two of the students were twelve year old girls. It was so refreshing to see their enthusiasm for art and the poistive attitude that they had coincerning their painting and the learning process. At what age do we become so critical and hard on ourselves? Some of us had that teacher or other adult figure that told us that the sky could not have yellow in it or that our flower looked like a chicken. Or as we became older we just got more self conscious of what people thought of us and that affected our approach to art. It can be scary to open ourselves up artistically but as we continue on our Creative Journey maybe we can find a way back to those early years when art was pure joy!
