Contagious Creativity

My son painted this picture when he was 5 years old.

He had been told by his teacher to draw a house in plain pencil.

He however quite rightly lived in a world of colour.

That year he got a grade C in art, apparently he wasn’t great at following direction.Artists don’t follow direction they create it.

Who gives any child a C for art? How would it help them flourish?

He inspired me to write a book.

Contagious creativity.

He inspires his sister to draw.

He now writes comics.

As a family we make stories together.


It needs to be nourished, nurtured glow and grow.

No more grey pencils and rules for our children.
