Everyone needs colour

Not sure if you’ve seen this video of Jim Carrey painting, sculpting and talking about what art means to him. All due respect to what he has achieved, I have never been much of a fan of his acting career, but this is a whole different dimension.

So surprising and relatable. His words. His experience of art. 

ALL ART should be encouraged from an early age. It makes me so sad to hear people say Music and Art are unimportant subjects in schools. Children should be encouraged to dance, to draw, to sculpt, to write, to sing, to play instruments, to build… Creativity teaches not to destroy. It teaches empathy, freedom, understanding, acceptance, relaxation, proactivity, joy, sharing.
