“K’s Playground”

When we are really paying attention to how children learn, how creativity informs their processing of new learnings, and how new learnings are expressed creatively, we can open ourselves to the experience of being awed.

The Atelier is a magnificent space for observing how knowledge tucked in the subconscious can be made apparent in children’s artwork.  Art is a whole mind-body-spirit  experience and expression.

Case in point, a child approached the easel today and began to paint.  A letter K appeared seemingly spontaneously. The child marveled at what she herself had put on her paper. “A K!” she exclaimed, “I painted a K!” She went on to add more paint, more color. When she finished, she declared her painting, “K’s Playground.”  Learning through play, indeed.
