Willow loved to be creative. She colored outside the lines. She broke crayons and painted wild pink trees and blue apples. Art was all around her, in nature, outside, in her imagination.

The problem was that her art teacher was not like that at all. Miss Hawthorn wanted her students to paint inside the lines. She wanted trees to be green and apples to be red. She wanted snowmen. Willow wanted snow ladies. Did Miss Hawthorn make Willow change?

This is the story about the profound influence of the power of one little girl's imagination.

(Without the provision of paintbrush and paint and respect for imagination, even the most potentially gifted artist will not become an artist.)

"I think it's a brilliant thing for a child to sense that adults are actually on the frontier of their own unknown. Not only that, but that they are there in a joyful way. They aren't feeling diminished because they don't have all the answers--they are actually looking to some horizon that is giving them a grand vista. Children can feel this in a palatable way." From Cultivating Imagination in Children

"You can't depend on your judgment when your imagination is out of focus." Mark Twain
