Yo! Ms. Yo! I'm an artist, a painter and I was impressed when I saw the word 'you' in every one of the ten suggestions. When I talk to kids about art I always tell them to never to be intimidated. No one cares how smart you are or how good you are. All they care about is you. All they want to see in your work is YOU. And if YOU'RE not in there somewhere - they won't be either. P.S. My wife's a teacher and she tells her kids the same thing when she talks to them about writing.
