We asked out seven-year-old kid, Ben, to draw a picture of himself. He thought about it, and said, “I need a mirror.”
I love that he thinks he is a good enough artist that a mirror would help. Guess what? He made a drawing of himself and it was fine. (Didn’t look like him… but it was great.) But what if I asked you, an adult, to draw a picture of yourself? Would you do it?
The amazing thing is that I have $10 that says YOU are a better artist than Ben. Yet Ben thinks he is a great artist, and (I’m guessing here) that you think you aren’t good at art. Whats up with that? Care to comment? Kids have a lot to teach us.
