I have worked with very young children who have produced the most extraordinary artwork. Many artists, especially in recent decades, have shown a profound interest in the artwork of children. Picasso once said that every child is an artist and that the challenge was how to remain one when we grow up. I have that quote hanging in my art room at school. I can honestly say that the greatest inspiration I have drawn in terms of becoming a painter myself has been from the children I teach and the unbridled enthusiasm they bring whenever they enter the art room.
