How I believe in passing things on – I love this Contagious Creativity quote
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.
Grades and great artists don’t necessarily go together
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.
This Contagious creativity is perfect!
He inspires his sister to draw.
He now writes comics.
He is still creative, and fabulous.
As a family we make stories together.
Creativity rocks – it is so bonding too.
It needs to be nourished, nurtured glow and grow.
No more grey pencils and rules for our children.
