just for fun

When I was six, my Dad visited my 1st grade class one day to teach us all how to
draw. We had easels set up and tried to imitate his step-by-step tutorial of Mickey
Mouse’s head. Needless to say, the apple fell really far from that tree. Little kids
were saying, “How come you can’t draw? Your Dad can.”

Fast forward a ton of years to this past spring when I decided to take a collage class
at RISD, just for fun. My teacher told us how she’d been intimidated by a classmate
who received all the attention for being able to draw well, so she pursued culinary
school instead. Twenty years later, she revisited a career in art and realized she could
draw by using paper and scissors. She’s really talented, but also a fantastic teacher
because she made us feel like we, too, could draw with paper and scissors.

Class has ended, but I’m still playing around with collage and love the meditative
aspect of using your imagination to create art. Just like a six-year-old kid.
