Kid Art

Amaya's school puts together a book of all her art work throughout the year, and at the end of the year I end up with a big binder of her fantastic art. The best thing about these books is reading the commentaries. The teacher takes the time to date stamp each piece and ask the child what she was drawing. I love these more than words can say.

"This person was once sad and then someone came and held her"

"This is a castle on screaming grass. The grass is screaming because the castle is standing on it."

"This is a suckernator that sucks something and burps really loud"

"It's a lot of obstacles that a lady went through"

I've had a long-standing love affair with B.Andreas' Story People - provocative art based on this type of kid drawings. How much more meaningful are these Amaya originals?
