Helen, age 6, came to spend an art day with me. I gave her a 24″x24″ canvas and explained to her what abstract art was. Then I gave her paint and artist texture mediums and let her go. The only instruction I gave her was to fill the whole canvas. She created a beautiful abstract painting that she will proudly hang over her bed.
I worked on a painting as she was doing hers. We stopped several times to critic each other’s work. She told me mine was “pretty crazy”. It was….
I am very proud of her for the time and thought she put into this work of art!
