As a parent I now see art in anything my childern create. In their younger years it was a smear of paint across a piece of paper, in Kindergarten it was the flip flop stepping stone I still have in my flower garden, today it is a freeskate program my daughter performs on the ice wearing a skating dress I designed and sewed for her
or a new model railroad layout my son is working on.
Today I am still not an artist, but I strive to become creative and find it challenging.
After watching and listening to clips in this unit I see my narrow view of art when I was younger. I now see art connecting and transforming to ones environment. As the connections are made your imagination grows. I see this imagination leading to a slow hunch or a little hunch and it grows to a bigger hunch. They then collide and become an idea. Ideas are only limited by ones imagination; however, without a space to nurture imagination it is difficult for a creative environment to grow.
