Jaiden turns away from working on his clay Gargoyle at the Gardiner Museum.
“I can’t do this,” he says to Ms. Molly, who is sitting beside him. “It doesn’t look like the Gargoyles we saw at Casa Loma. “
“Art doesn’t have to be perfect”, Molly warmly tells him “That’s what I really like about it. It’s about daring yourself to do something you haven’t tried before and being flexible, and having fun with it!”
Jaiden smiles and gets back to work.
Ten minutes later, Molly accidently squishes her gargoyle’s tail, letting out a gasp.
“It’s okay Ms. Molly!” Jaiden tells her warmly. “Remember, art doesn’t have to be perfect.”
March Break has it’s charms, but it’s good to be back at DAREarts.
