It is a delight to see how children who are between the ages of 6 and 10 can pick up on painting technique with ease.
With children, it is easier to address thought behaviors of competition, self-criticism, various aspects of perspective and painting from the gut.
Knowing you’ve painted an “everything is okay” painting and when you’ve painted what you want in life–they naturally paint in the uncomfortable and anguished reality too with simple truth.
The parents thank me for working with their children when the children have taught me double what I’ve taught them. The trick now is to bring their curiosity, honesty and fluid creativity into my life expressions.
