Commit yourself to lifelong learning. The most valuable asset you’ll ever have is your mind and what you put into it.
Still influenced by Easter colors with these 7 collages made during this past Easter holiday. They are number 57 to 63 of 365 art pieces I am aiming to create with collage this year.
I have titled each one and as I did so, I figured out a theme the theme. It is “kids moving forward together” or “lifelong learning”. I think most of these collages reflect that in some way, but it might not be evident if you don’t look for it. I love subtle themes, that don’t emerge until you’re already done with the series!
I think that the idea of lifelong learning is very important, because it has a lot to do with having an open mind to new ideas, being curious and being creative in your life. All very important aspects of living a good life, and being a good human being.
I found a couple of good quotes to go with the themes of today too:
The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.
I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.
The excitement of learning separates youth from old age. As long as you’re learning you’re not old.

You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.

Thanks for joining me and my fellow creators on this year’s big creative journey! Feel free to also check out a previous week 9 from back when I did a similar project in 2013, in case you don’t remember or didn’t read my blog back then.
Please tell me below in the comment section which of my collages you like best – and why. I’d love to know what you like, or dislike, about these.
