Art, Children, and Your Inner Child

Human Dynamics - Dina Soker

About the painting: Five panel painting ; Like different musical instruments; every sound is unique, When they all play together, what a colorful and marvelous music can be heard… Different people… different perspectives… different caricatures… different mind sets, Everyone is unique in his Human Dynamics. When they all collaborating together, what a colorful and fruitful community can we become…

Art, Children, and Your Inner Child

What's beautiful about children when it comes to art is that we - as adults - don't need to explain anything to them. If you take a child and put him/her in front of a painting of any kind, the child will start to bring his/her own ideas to the painting. However, if you were to put an adult in front of the painting, the adult would only bring criticism about the painting.

Children are open to see new things, to investigate what is there, and bring their own ideas. Most importantly, they are not afraid of what other people are thinking about that.

This somewhat explains while some many adults have lost the inner child in themselves. That inner child that is now exists -as an adult - is afraid to go forward and say things about what they are seeing - even if it's different from other people.

So, what is the best way to get your inner child back? The answer may seem simple but it's playing. When we play with children, we get our inner child back.

When we get into the game, we forget about everything. We become the child, we become the game, and we become the partner. Again, we forget about everything while at the same time knowing that everything is possible in the game. So playing games - ball games, board games, or even playing with dolls or cars - brings back the child.

For those people without children, the way to navigate back to your "child mindset" is to do something that you liked to do when you were a child. Remember what you really loved to do as you were growing up? Maybe it was painting, sewing, playing with mud, scouting, or baking with your grandma. As long as it's something you loved to do as a child and brought you a lot of joy, simply do those same things! It helps you to reconnect to this place. This will eventually bring you to the same spot and when you're in the same spot, the joy and happiness of your inner child is released.
