inner child

Back in London after running a weekend workshop for families at The Hepworth Wakefield. I love setting out the cutting and sticking table, a riot of wondrous Lyra Colour Giant pencils, hole punches, tape, wool, paper and card. It's a do-what-you-like-invent-create-stuff corner where eggs, roaring dinosaurs, butterflies and flowers emerged today. Adults were crammed round it too, their inner children demanding a bit of ME time!

This drawing is by a 4 year old who explored Gallery 5 which is full of small and enormous Hepworth working models. At the bottom of the page she drew the rope barrier with no opinion about it, just that it was there. Her sense of perspective intrigued me, as well as the people included in her gallery scene. A wonderful representation.
