Body Tracing, Art, Teenagers and lots and lots of Giggles

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!
