Kid Art Project

For the last five years I have worked with kid art projects in kindergarten. My pupils are between 1 and 6 years old. At this age the kids are full of ideas and fun to be around. Environment has not started to influence them in their art creation. They express themselves from the heart. My role is in giving them the opportunity, the tools and the materials they need to work at their art. Each individual forms their own picture after their own ideas.

It is just amazing how kids manage to make beautiful pictures, often they are true works of art like you can see done by prestigious artists. Kids are fun to be with and listen to. Often making stories and they can easily be led on in their joy of telling a story. I have learned a lot about this from them. I paint pictures my self and am gradually learning to paint from the heart. Kids have taught me to be free in art creation and be sincere.
