In early childhood development we learn that playing is learning. Is that because the act of "play " is not intimidating ? There are no rules, or right or wrong way to play . The child is free to learn from exploration during play . Figuring key factors out as they engage in the act of play. The square will not fit in the round hole but it will fit in the square one. The crayons make fun marks on the paper depending on how I move my arm , my body, and my hand. So does the paint . As adults I believe we can still learn the most through play because the act of engagement is no longer intimidating. Playing is exploring , creating, investigating, engaging , practicing ,and enjoying the process of all of the above. Through that engagement we are going to "learn " what will happen without fear of loss.
These days especially with social media , we expect ourselves to create everything perfectly when we sit down to paint. How often has this stopped us from creating at all ? Or , from trying something new? Playing is the act of beginning to learn a skill or furthering it .
