My two youngest daughters enjoy painting, but they want me to paint with them. I know that kids enjoy doing things with their parents, but I wonder if all art should be a group activity. Is art more fun with multiple people, rather than a lonely artist slaving away in his/her gallery?
I actually enjoy this type of activity, because I get to play around with paint (in this case tempera), and since its just me and the kids I can play around and use their imagination to create a world. For example, trees in reality do not have that variation of color, but to my children it looks like candy trees. However, they were very critical of my rocks, hmmm.
