Children searching for their place in the world of art are usually faced with the dilemma of how to express themselves. They are often made to believe that art should be created or presented in a certain manner. Edgar Degas once said, “Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.” The only way children can learn to create beautiful art is by embracing and expressing what they feel. Art does not have to be perfect, nor does it have to be conveyed in a prescribed format. Art is free and that is the beauty of it. If you love creating art, meet the art explorer in Creative Creatures: Imagination and Art Encouragement by Heather Christian Iglesias. Get yourself a copy to learn more about art as the author takes you on an exploration of the process.
Lovers of children's picture books and young art enthusiasts will find Heather Christian Iglesias’ Creative Creatures an enthralling read. Iglesias whisked me away from reality and plunged me into a whole new world of infinite imagination. The colorful and beautiful images in the book impressively depict the different forms art can take. Through this, children are encouraged to see art from many different perspectives, and most importantly, learn how to express their ideas without limiting themselves. The rhyming words and the playful mixing of the different shades of color made the reading experience fun. I found this to be an ingenious way of inspiring creativity in young art lovers. The choice of words will also enrich your child’s vocabulary.
