The Joys of Creation

Not Very Talented (The Classroom)
This story is about an eight-year-old girl who is told by her teacher in art class, "You're not very talented, are you?" These words embarrassed her and severely damaged her confidence.

The Studio
It took the girl over five decades to finally realize that artists don't paint to be praised of the world; they create because they love it, because they want it to exist.
