Children are universally seen as being pretty creative, whilst us adults struggle to recall how we did it, all those years ago. If we can learn from them, if we can regain their open wonder and talent, what new ideas we could bring into the world! –author unknown
I love working with children. Their lack of inhibition in the creative process is wonderful and inspirational.
I was fortunate to have the opportunity to work with this 13-year-old student over the summer. She was a delight to teach as she eagerly learned about mosaics. Without hesitation she jumped right in exploring the possibilities of different materials, colors, textures, and compositions. She is pictured above with a small sample of the numerous wonderful mosaics she created.
