I was too lazy togo upstairs to get another #paintbrush, so 4 1/2 yr old angelina and i made a #game to share the brush. She would make a red shape, then I would  add to each red shape with blue. It was her idea to add a border/ frame which really pulled it together! Now i don’t know about you, but i think this is #beautiful. And the game was pleasurable. Maybe part of #art and #creativity is to expand your ability to SEE #beauty and harmony,… And your standards for it.  Beauty is EXPERIENCE. #homeschool #unschool #learning #art #painting #pattern #print #color #shape

AMADA #musica #afrobrasileira!!! Como viverei sem voce? Como fui que eu me afastei….. Voce e tanta alegria, tanta beleza, tanta cultura, tanta historia, tanto ritmo, tanto talento, tanta vida….  Nao tem palavras.

This is a fun #art #game i’ve played with each of my kids… We each take a #color or pass a #pen or #marker back and forth, adding tones or lines to the “thing” that comes to life bit by bit  on the page. This one with Angelina aged 4 1/2. Very relaxing and happy time together. Grownups can enjoy coloring too!! Just the relaxation of filling a shape with color…. Aaaaahhh. ;0) #parenting #homeschool #unschool #art #development #play #learnthroughplay #experiential

It’s so exciting the first time your child draws a sunshine or a face, which are representational symbols, like hadwriting or heiroglyphics, that communicate through images. Non representational art is usually not applauded in our young people’s development, but take care… This is important work, similar to expressing vocally without words. it’s the more direct experience with spirit, emotion, that which is beyond symbols. Keep that in mind, for yourself and your little ones…… (This one aged 4) -more to come on this subject!
