Of my many passions in life, my biggest is art. Teaching art, creating art, looking at art. In other words, experiencing art. It is especially important that children spend time experiencing art, regardless of whether they are “good at it”. All children are thinkers and creators, and the process is more important than the product. As I teach children art I also teach them problem solving, brainstorming, inventive thinking, autonomy, working together, pride, persistence, intuitiveness, hand-eye skills and so much more! In today’s schools of conformity, children need a way to express themselves, engage their senses, feel uninhibited, try new things, feel good about who they are. Our fast-paced, connected world of today requires constant innovation and problem solving. The creative thinkers of today will be the successful, happy adults of tomorrow.
