fast forward 3 careers later and to today, I throw clay, I sculpt, I weave,
I do batik, some water colors - pen and ink - some life drawing, a little
beading and jewelry work, I knit somewhat compulsively... I doodle
endlessly, I can hand letter, draw in 3 point perspective - and make salt
dough (and gak!) and to top it off I am also wizard of Photoshop... which
really impresses the big kids. But what I am most proud of, is that when my
students come into my classroom, they are not afraid to try new things, they
love getting messy, and practically anyone can have a success in my
class - - now that's creative energy!

AMEN! I think you have reached the heart of the matter.
