Henry, I really liked your post on encouraging risk taking. I think kids
believing there is a "right" and a "wrong" way to do art can be a major
stumbling block. It is also healthy, in an all 'round way, to encourage
kids to experiement as a means to learning (in all areas of life). Re:
meaning - in Art Therapy we seek first to explore the meaning to the artist
themself. No doubt, without an artists journal notes, years later we may be
attributing meaning that was never intended
