For most adults, the elementary school art room is a forgotten relic of long-lost childhoods. Life now consists of seemingly infinite burdens and responsibilities that crowd out memories of innocent, joyful, childish creation.
The art room doesn’t have anything it can teach adults…does it?
Could a place as seemingly childish as our school art room actually be hiding important lessons for adults about life and faith? Could rediscovering the art room actually uncover a path to finding fulfillment and purpose in the adult world?
Years after leaving my own childhood art room, going to college, getting married, and trying a few dead-end career paths, I became an art teacher.
I went to the art room to teach, but found myself learning something profound, unexpected, even life changing: that the art room’s most enduring and timeless lessons are not for kids learning to paint or draw, but for adults who finally want discover how to live the lives they were created for.
