Inktober aka HisTober 2018

Hi there, Diamond Glamour Girls,



It’s funny how some man would come up with the concept of refining his skill by using the month of October to improve on his skills. Then taking it a step further to improve on what he was doing by working on his line work to discover how good could he really be at his own trade. Career as it is called. 

Then a silly art teacher understood the concept of what he was doing and changed the rules to fit her needs in teaching children. The same concepts, only more by adding a history lesson with it. What better way to develop penmanship than by adding a story or music. Straight lines how straight can you draw them.

The developmental mind works differently for boys vs. girls. It’s just human nature and the ways our hormones and thought life developed differently. The goal is to develop the individual desire to learn. Learning and accepting the person where they are at and who they are no matter what age is important. Put it another way, when was the last time you were with a friend and they didn't accept you for who you are? They where always trying to change you. How did that make you feel? Yep, pretty bad. That happens to both male and females in school. Imagine how they felt. 

What I changed about inktober is the type of ink. Ink can be used by older children when they have already mastered writing. Then they can get a quill, a thin paintbrush and learn to create other things. I understand not all agree with the concept. Development learning is different for each individual. It's purely my thoughts on the inking trend and how I enjoy teaching the subject of art.

If one trades out liquid water color instead of ink, the child will still feel the same feel of what it it like to ink. Allowing them the freedom to develop the like soils.  However, they won't have the stains and mess of inking. Clean up is easier This allows the child the confidence to learn there are no mistakes in art they can't correct.

If you'd like to see some of the work from other people Google #HisTober2018. The painting you see are my own creation.  Having control over the tools used in art and writing can lead to career that is fofilling and rewarding for the child, after adulthood.
