It's really hard for me not to notice that so much of the art that comes out of young children, unbidden, is truly about love, joy, faith and humanity.
|Children express so much in their art. Emotional nuance through color, composition, subject. I think this sun expresses such a lovely serenity!|
|This is a painting inspired by the life and work of William H. Johnson.|
I'm sharing this because it illustrates how art and learning about the lives of artists can inspire young children. This student seems to respond to his art in compassionate, empathetic way, even though I never told the kids that his end of life was pretty tragic.
