My first “artistic” memory from childhood (and it’s one of my very first memories in life for that matter!) is an incident from when I was about 4-5 years old. Me and my cousin were playing alone upstairs in our house when we spotted a big, fat, blue marker. Inspiration struck us and we started to doodle ALL OVER in two rooms; on the wooden floors, on the heating elements, on the walls, on the windows, on the furniture and even on my bigger sister’s belts we had borrowed without permission. I remember hearing my father’s footsteps coming up the stairs as if it happened yesterday. Only THEN I realized what we had done! It is interesting how something creative like that can make a person get carried away and forget the whole world around them. I guess that’s what’s called “spontaneous” or “free” art… Anyway, I would love my children to express their creativity, just in a slightly different way… If I win, we’d LOVE to get the book “Mudworks”. I have already ordered “First art: Art experiences for toddlers and twos”, “Preschool art: It’s the process, not the product”, “Preschool art: Craft & Construction” and we are anxiously waiting for them to arrive! Thank you!
