I am the proud,(emphasis on proud), new owner of the coolest coffee mug around. Made by my teenager, the one who claims to have no artistic ability, in art class.
My son thinks that because he can't draw things realistically, that he doesn't have any artistic talent. It's okay with me if my kids don't enjoy art, but I hope I impress on them that being able to render hyper-realistic images is not the only measure of creativity. Using unusual glaze colors, unexpected shapes, and giant handlebar mustaches on coffee mugs...well, I think that's pretty creative.
It makes me smile to look at it.
