My daughter just turned 14. What what what? I was thrilled when she asked to have a party at JuJu Art Studios….just a few days before her party. Okay, then. I scrambled. What could I do with 8 thirteen/fourteen years old that would 1)be fun 2)be creative 3)not embarrass her and 4)not require a ton of supplies.
I was so focused on the logistics of the party and figuring out how to make it fun, I was wholly unprepared by the outpouring of creativity that gushed forth so effortlessly.
They just did the project without a lot of fuss, giggles abounding. No big deal. No Angst. Unlike us adults, they weren’t stuck on….well, whatever. They were just hanging out with friends and throwing paint around.
How I wish I could harness that energy in my own work. I love working with teenagers!
