Here comes the first smile

September. First days in school for many toddlers. First goodbye to mom….


I notice colors impress children and make them forget their anxiety.


A white paper and temperas. Curiosity.


Choosing and mixing colors. Experimentation. First with brush. Second with fingers. At the end, whole hand is full of color.


Her comes the first smile.


Next day, the children come to me and ask for colors….
