Kitchen Table Art
MOST MORNINGS our kitchen table has some remnant that proves the kitchen is part artist's studio. This morning, as I put away Mia's colouring sets, I decided to talk about what it means to watch an emerging artist craft her work. It's quite remarkabke to see the personal development of a little person as she experiments with colour pencil, watercolour pigments, and graphite on sponge. I think she gets some of this creative playfulness from her mom the animator. She also has learned to appreciate art-making in her Play and Learn creche from one kind woman, a mom a generation older than Mia, who knows how to teach via art. This is a story that will continue to pique my interest.
