Janett graciously allowed Alyssa and I to observe. Everyone had fun. I snapped some pics. When we came home, I painted from one of my photos. This little girl was very focused. It was just her connecting with her work. She was not hung up on exact replication of the instructors example. She was enjoying the colors dancing with each other on the canvas. She was putting paint down in a beautiful, abstract way, and she was at peace with it. She was using her "artistic license", which Janettmarie told the children was totally okay.
Adults use the wine to help them relax with their painting and not worry about perfection. Kids don't need that, as everything they put down is pure, unique, expressive perfection.
