Every Bone Broken

 

 

Grade school is bad for your health- your creative health. K-12 education breaks every creative bone in your body. Most North Americans at 17 years old have had 12 years of following a paved road that measures the distance travelled by how fast and how far. We're using the wrong roadmap. 

How do you repair all the compound fractures? Well, don't try to reclaim your childhood by gluing uncooked macaroni to bristol board. We can't 'be kids again' and who the hell wants to go back through the nightmare of acne? But you can rediscover your inner 5 year old by starting to draw outside the lines.

What about Grade 2 and drawing pictures? At 7 we begin the process of severing our ties to the tactile, physical and visual world of our childhood. We learn to use the horizontal and vertical bars of the literal and the real. The coloring book --stay inside the lines--one of the least visual activities we can give a child rules the day.
