I had the pleasure of teaching a mini-workshop at my studio last weekend to a terrific 8-year-old, her mother, and grandmother. Grandma is a quilt/fiber artist so mom has also been around art all of her life. Our 8-year-old is a natural – she really understands how to put colors together. Although her favorite color is pink, she stretched and went for a purple theme (although we needle felted a touch of pink on her flowers so that it went with her pink outfits too). By the way, she can sew better than some adults I know :o)
Here are a couple of photos. Note her use of color – especially the turquoise button in the center of her flower. I had pulled some buttons that coordinated with her color scheme but she selected the turquoise all on her own. Adorable!
