It took me 4 years to paint like Raphael and a lifetime to paint like a child - Picasso
It is so true. Children are true artists in every sense of the word. They don't question themselves and have such a raw quality to how they create. To get back to that place of creating like a child is my ultimate goal as an artist. I believe through working in a journal, the walls are a bit broken down. I feel more at ease with playing and not worrying about the outcome. If I find myself getting to tight, I reach for my favorite tool!! (more about this in class!)
I will be your guide through this childlike play and give you some tools....literal and figurative to achieve a looseness and rawness just as kids do. I still struggle with staying loose, but it is where I want to be. I don't think there is any right or wrong way to create art or journal. It is about bringing a child-like mind to the table and playing for the sake of playing. It's about getting quiet and listening to what we need to journal about. It is healing for us. We don't have to carry around all that makes up our past....or present for that matter. We can come to the page and release what is there....whether it be negative or positive. To release is to give life to the positive and bury the negative. That is the beauty of art. It fixes. It saves. It is my realm of sanity.
I'll give you lots of ideas and prompts to carry you through this journaling escape. Come with a child-like beginners mind and let's PLAY!!
Invite your kids to join you too!!
