I have always felt that the ability to be curious is something that more adults need to do. Everyone agrees that a child needs to be curious in order to learn, but for some reason, it is not considered important as you get older. Why? I guess, as an adult, we are already supposed to know everything…which is not a good way to approach learning any new skill as you get older. Anyway, here is the quote I read from David Macaulay from The Journal of the National Art Education Association. He wrote that making art requires a
stubborn curiosity about why things look the way they do…Lack of curiosity is the first step towards visual illiteracy, and by that I mean not really seeing what is going around us.
