I feel as though the term is really so parents/caregivers don&#39;t focus so much on expecting something.<br />I agree that the results are frequently gorgeous!<br />I also agree that it&#39;s how all artists learn, how else would new techniques be discovered!? :)Aleaciahttp://www.blogger.com/profile/05196474184976553422noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4226697056573729809.post-5256383161660264132012-01-15T21:00:34.680-05:002012-01-15T21:00:34.680-05:00I&#39;m so glad you had fun!

I didn&#39;t realize that the laissez faire approach to art had a name- I do this sometimes ( I have no art training or background or skill)- but I do it because I like to watch the evolution from nothing to something. I guess, what I loved watching was the process- which makes perfect sense. At our daughters first art sessions with a local artist (we took her once a week if we could), the artist pulled out some pastels and I was surprised when the artist laid them on their sides to color with. Untrained, I would have held them like a crayon. The sessions weren&#39;t for parents to watch but I wanted to observe a session before I started dropping her off. When it was my daughters turn to use the pastels, she did what I would have done, she started drawing with the pastel like a crayon upright. After a few circles, she paused and looked at the pastel in her hand. Then, sh laid the pastel on its side and started rubbing it back and forth. I don&#39;t know why. I found that fascinating and thrilling. I was impressed that the art teacher just watched her and didn&#39;t correct her even though she had just demonstrated how to do the technique. That session was learning moment for me and so now I sit back and am often hands-off as long as the materials aren&#39;t dangerous- just to see where the art will go. Maybe I&#39;m off, but I think that might be unintentional &quot;process art&quot;. Great post!
