“To be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it.” –Osho
Morning my beautiful friends! I hope you like the renovation! Its feeling very fresh and clean in here!
Today I want to share a few ponderings on the spirit of play and the willingness to see the beauty in your mistakes.
I've been hanging out with precious munchkins like this for the past 12 years
They teach me as much as I teach them, probably more...
I feel truly blessed to be able to do what I do and I realised today that I teach my adult workshops pretty much in the same way that I teach the kids. Anyone who has ever been to one of my classes will know that my catch cry is that there are no mistakes in art just "happy accidents" or opportunities for creative growth! Try to remember this next time you pick up your brush or pencil :)
Here are some other things I encourage
Making crazy creatures and funny faces!
sending gratitude out into the world...
finding your own unique, individual, amazing strengths...
being proud of your own awesomeness!
exploring, discovering and sharing new ideas!
Being inspired by others to teach and try new things!
being outrageous! Playing with your food!
taking time for quiet reflection....
and joyful leaps!
making art everywhere you go...
and remembering to play..at the beach...
or in the dress up box!
Come play with me!
