Children's Art - The Great Cliché
Over at his blog Mathias Svalina just posted some interesting thoughts about the phrase "Emerging Writers" (accompanied by some nice pictures).
The following phrase caused me to knee-jerk.
"But actual kids write & draw the most profound art there is & only through education are they forced into the social blinders."
--- isn't this a bit of a cliché? Or a lot of a cliché?
Do 'actual kids' actually write and draw the 'most profound art'?
Screw kids! The most profound art comes from grownups who're able to shed or shred or ignore or put aside or whatever those social "binders"
