I am so lucky! I get to spend time with children that come to my classroom excited to get started. During the creative process many children experience epiphanies. It seems to be the order of the day. "Look, if I cut it this way I can make it connect!", or "See what I've made", or "This is so cool!"
Once the children are engaged in their creations and things are humming and buzzing with creativity, sure enough, one child or several children share what they are experiencing. Last week there was a particularly captivating insight that a 6 year old student shared. She said, while she was deeply engaged in her artwork "You see, you can't know the future. And you don't want to know, you just got to let it happen."
