Beautiful Nonsense: Children's Authentic Art-Making and Deleuzian Difference
Grube, Vicky
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v56 n1 p55-64 2014
When we join with another who shares our sensibilities, we have potential for doing good. This article explores how the self-initiated art making of children that happens outside the classroom challenges the child emotionally and intellectually more than teacher-directed school art. Furthermore, authentic collaborative art making creates a site where a child can affect and be affected by others. This freedom opens shared spaces to encounter joy in otherness.
