It’s time for art class at the elementary school. The teacher tells all the students to draw a simple landscape. The only requirement is that it must include a tree. All of the students begin their drawings. The teacher walks up and down the rows checking on each piece of art. She stops at one little girl. “Susi, trees aren’t purple.”
Everybody starts out as an artist. Children love to draw and paint. The even give their artwork away as gifts. We live in a world where if something doesn’t look exactly like what it is depicting, it isn’t “good” art. That mentality stunts creativity.
The best thing about art is that there are no boundaries– it can be anything you want it to be.
