Letting the kids draw on the walls

I read about a beautiful art project today--artist Yayoi Kusama built a replica of the interior of a house inside the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane, entirely painted in white. Children then came in and put circular stickers of various sizes all over everything, covering most of the surfaces. What a cool idea! I love the bright colors and the randomness of the pattern the children created.

K. told me that when he was little and just learning how to write, he came home from school and practiced writing the letter "O" over and over and over---on the walls of the dining room. Obviously, this didn't go over well. Some might say he hasn't practiced his handwriting since! :)
