I am glad someone else out there has raised the question of "are kids genuine artists when they create a masterpiece?" I feel some kids are gifted in the way they design thier compositions and they come up with good pieces of art more often than the average student; however, I see some kids that don't have a clue when they are creating as to what they are doing! I have seen kids in kindergarten create works that some adult artist only dream of, and that is the only piece that is of quality for the next 6 year even with me harping at them the rules of design! At a young age students are not concerned with what is right and what is wrong with a composition and if you have enough students over time you are bound to get a few masterpieces. So no I don't think these young artist should be considered masters.
