Encouragement and Experiments
Most of our artists were encouraged, in some way or another, by parents or teachers or the other kids who were quick to recognize real talent in their midst. Sas remembers, "As a kid, I was always making things, writing a neighborhood newspaper, writing letters to foreign pen pals. I was recognized as the ‘class artist’ and generally got approval for being ‘artistic. ’ I knew I was different from the other kids because of my quirky notions, but I felt I was also appreciated for being artistic. People would ask my advice about color, for instance."

Violette says, "I have a vivid memory of finding ‘my people’ when I entered junior high school art class and connected with a group of artsy kids. We were known as the ‘Art Nerds.’ I had finally found my niche and a place of belonging. Much of my spare time and artistic daydreams were spent in the art room connecting with my creative friends, making art and discussing art."

Scott says, "I was encouraged to do art. I was told I was good at it and all that—I think if you encourage any kid to do something from an early age, they might pick it up later in life. I was told, ‘You’re good at this but you’re not so good at that,’ so inevitably I went for what I was told I was good at."

Gail recalls a particular drawing experience from when she was young. "I remember how beautiful a new box of forty-eight Crayola crayons was when you first opened them before they were used. I remember starting at one corner of the paper and making a colored shape. Then I made a border around that shape in a different color. I continued this process until a new shape presented itself, and then I made colored halos around the new shape. I kept doing this until the page was full. It was immensely enjoyable. I wish I could see any of those many drawings today, but they have all disappeared."
