189/365: Mixed Media Christmas

young artist's piece in progress
Today I made:

an art play space...

I had so much fun making art with the kids at school yesterday that I decided to create an art play date for one of my tutoring students tonight. She's my little art apprentice and has picked up some good techniques for her fourth mixed media collage.

We listened to Christmas music, I learned some lessons that only a teenager can teach you and she created her little heart out. I love watching young artists create. They are so much less inhibited and self-doubting. They create from a place of joy and take pride in their efforts.
The reminder to practice that kind of creation was the best Christmas gift she could have given me.
