A Window to the Soul
August 1, 2019
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
-Eleanor Roosevelt

In the beautiful new book, Treasures in the Thicket, one of the authors, Rosalina Rodriguez, reminds us how children’s art can be a window into their souls:

“‘When I look at the children’s paintings,’ says Rosalina, ‘I feel I can see the way they view the world.’ Although the paintings children created for the book were of animals, in some ways they were also self-portraits. Children painted windows into their ways of seeing, into their ideas, and into their identities…

We have found over the years that the impressions and possibilities glimpsed when we open our eyes in this way to children’s art offer us connections to children that serve us in our daily work.”

Children's drawings are not just useless scribbling; those are the reflection of their philosophy, emotion and character. It is our shortcomings that sometimes we miss to understand those. Let us try to connect the thread.
