Look at a child. See how connected they are to their creative self? Pretend you are a child and make something.
Jon's dad recently told me about when Jon's brother Adam was in about 2nd grade and they were having their Parent Teacher Conferences his teacher brought him a picture Adam had drawn of a tree, and it wasn't your average brown & green, it was filled with every color the crayola box could allow. The teacher very seriously said she was concerned because "trees aren't blue and pink." Mike really didn't think it was that big of a deal, but later asked Adam why he had drawn the picture like that. He said, as only a sweet little child can "when I squint my eyes, there is color everywhere."
I love that story! Children have such unique, yet such perceptive views of the world. Here is my tribute to making something through child-like eyes, completely colored in crayola!
