i just returned from being the guest “artist” in my friend megan’s classroom.

quotes that made feel so good:
“hello artist, you’re pretty”
“what’s your favorite color? i like ALL the colors”
“i want to be an artist” (sadly they don’t have art classes in public school here)
“i cry a lot at home and only sometimes at school” (we agreed that it feels good to cry)
“how do you draw so good?”
“i like butterflies” (this was a theme among the girls)
“i draw good snails”

we bound their books and they are so imaginative and talented. wow, to be 7 again!
