I recently had the opportunity to visit a local school and observe a couple of art class. This is in preparation for my work with the Children's Creative Project. I found it very interesting to watch how the children processed there creative flow. I was reminded of my recent attempts to create.

Sixth graders were given lumps of clay to build coil pots. Some of them dove right in without hesitation and worked with confidence. Others began slowly and with what seemed to be fear. And there were those who just couldn't get past the clay sticking to their fingers. 

You know, I kind of get that. How many times have I started out on a project and got stuck with a feeling of muck on my my fingers. I am speaking figuratively about the muck. What I mean is outside stresses and pressures stick to me and don't allow the process to flow. I become focused on what I am trying to leave behind rather than the the freedom that comes with creating. Who cares what is created, it is the process that frees my mind and my spirit.

We are taking the weekend away from home. I am hopeful that when we return, I will be freer in my self expression and be able to dive right in without hesitation and with confidence.

I hope that you want more opportunities to visit local schools and want to have more experience with students. That student in the photo up there is looking very nice and she is doing something interesting in that culture center.
