Stone / Kamen




























































What I love most about the beach is that it provides so much opportunity for real open-ended art: no rules, no limitations, just pure freedom and imagination, and beautiful nature materials, that always, (always!) result in beautiful structures! Very simmilar to fairy houses we built in the forest! Anyone can do it, and I think - everybody enjoys it. Even adults. And the reason why - is that we usually don't think about this activity as an art activity, but rather as play. And even though that should be the case with art as well, we are not always as free in it as we are in play. This is maybe the reason why adults participate so nicely with kids in playing at the beach, not telling them what to do or how to do it, but rather following the kids in their own ideas. And it would be really wonderful if this would be the case with all the art that kids do in participation with adults, not only at the beach but elswhere as well!

Ono zbog čega volim plažu to je što pruža toliko mogućnosti za likovne aktivnosti otvorenog tipa: nema pravila, nema ograničenja, samo čista sloboda i mašta, i prelepi prirodni materijali, koji uvek, (zaista uvek!) rezultiraju u prelepim strukturama! Veoma slično kućicama za bebe vile koje smo pravili u šumi! Svako može da se igra, i ja mislim - svako voli. Čak i odrasli. A razlog zašto je to tako je, čini mi se, taj što odrasli obično ne razmišlju o ovoj aktivnosti kao o umetničkoj aktivnosti, već upravo - kao o igri. I iako bi to trebalo da bude slučaj uopšte sa umetnošću, mi nismo uvek onoliko slobodni u njoj, kao što smo u igri. To je možda razlog zašto odrasli tako lepo učestvuju sa decom u igranju na plaži, ne govoreći šta da rade niti kako, već prate decu u njihovim sopstvenim idejama. I bilo bi zaista divno ako bi to bio slučaj sa likovnim aktivnostima koje deca rade uz učešće odraslih, ne samo na plaži već bilo gde!
