Christmas brought me a new set of pencils and paints, that I have been experimenting with, along with showing my four year old son how to use them. He doesn’t fingerpaint at home. He’s far more interested in using brushes, all of them. So just as I painted with my father when I was that age, now my son is painting with me. He does some amazing work mixing the colors together. It is insightful to see the kinds of things he is experimenting with, letters, shapes, and color. It is an excellent time to get him involved in the creative process, and I hope to continue to foster his love of art in the future as well.
