Courageous Creation

Creating art can be a very courageous act and one way we can help cultivate courage in children and ourselves. 

Creating art can be extremely scary as it requires a willingness to bare one’s soul. We can feel exposed, but as terrifying as making art or participating in art making can be, the exhilaration of the process can be its own reward. 

Encourage exploration. 

Encourage experimentation. 

Let your mind wonder. 

Make space to create. 

Talk about art. 


Mistakes are just ‘Happy Accidents.’
