Finding your inner artist, day 28: About seeing things through the eyes of a child

Today’s quote:

When my daughter was about seven years old, she asked me one day what I did at work.  I told her I worked at the college – that my job was to teach people how to draw.  She stared at me, incredulous, and said, “You mean they forget?”  ~ Howard Ikemoto

Of course we all need to learn technique in our chosen field of art. However, it would certainly help sometimes to remember that absolutely everyone can be creative if they allow themselves to be playful and not overly self-conscious (maybe even a bit silly).

When did you last allow yourself to be like that?
