"I like meditation because it calms you down and clears your mind. If you look at a painting closely you can see how you were feeling. I realized that I can show my feelings on paper. I like spontaneous painting because it makes me feel relaxed and calm."
Marion Chong (6th Grade)
"I am hidden, blue, treasured, broken, in within a paradise, with my emotions, lonely."
April Chen (5th Grade)
"There are always feelings that I hide from other people, but when it is art I can find a million feelings in the painting. The meditation is also a part of the spontaneous painting. Meditation helps me focus and relax before a spontaneous painting."
Serat Kazi (6th Grade)
"Spontaneous Painting helps me to relax. I don't have to think about what we're painting. It's just a free painting time. When I paint I feel like I can be anywhere. I learn my true emotions. My true emotions are really inside of me. Spontaneous painting helps you know more of someone. It helped me to see my friend's feelings."
