This picture of Matisse in later life is a reminder of the importance of keeping the faith and remaining passionate about your creativity. I have just starting working in a school with children who have had little or no exposure to ‘art’. It is such a joy and pleasure to share in their excitement and feel their wonderment. I am reminded too how being in touch with your creativity empowers you and your own sense of worth and identity in the world. So always keep the child with-in you alive!
