In early childhood, it is the process not the product that guides us. Children dwell in the present moment. Art is simply an exploration of thought, of feelings, and sometimes just an experience of the senses. The colors, the feel of the brush or the paint on fingers, the materials…
Today we played with collage. Cardboard canvases were painted in colors the children mixed to their liking last week and then layered with “bits” from our tinker trays.
The product just happened to be beautiful. But that was, of course, not the purpose.
