Think Like a Child
On exhibit at Central Library, July 2012
Picasso once remarked, “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up. It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.”
This juried exhibit from the Arlington Artists Alliance showcases thirty nine artists charged with the task of “drawing like a child” – without the restraints, conventions, norms or any other limitations that constrain adults.
