When I was in Primary School, we published a class book of stories, poems & art. Half a dozen of us had to meet with the publisher & learn the process of writing, illustrating & publishing a book. One of the boys in the group had nominated me to join because he admired my artistic talents & felt I would be perfect for the job. I was very shy at school & often teased, but that was the first time a peer had gone into bat for me. Some 30 years later, I am still thankful to him for seeing that in me as that moment had such a huge impact on my feeling of self-worth. I am now homeschooling my 6yo daughter & she'd happily spend all day creating works of art (when not cooking or dancing). We already have some of your books, but as she's getting older, I'd love to win 'Primary Art' for her. We went to an Aboriginal art workshop recently & the woman running commented on how artistic my daughter was. Just by being exposed to new techniques, she was producing amazing work like I'd never seen her do. I hope by winning the book, I'm able to introduce different techniques to develop her natural talents further. I know from experience how much of an impact early artistic experiences can positively affect so many different areas of adult life.
