Here is a wonderful post on children and art from the excellent teacher, Jennie!
Today we begin our month-long journey of creating masterpieces for our annual Art Show.
“It took me a lifetime to learn to draw like a child.” -Picasso-
“I would like to paint the way a bird sings.” -Monet-
“Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.”
“Color is a power that directly influences the soul. Color is the keyboard. The artist is the hand that plays.” -Kandinsky-
“There are flowers for those who want to see them.” -Matisse-
P.S. There really is a red house in Starry Night. Thank you, Snoopy. And thank you, Liam, for pointing this out to me years ago when you were four years old. I never saw it, but you did. Children catch far more than we do.
