Project Description

I Catch My Moment: Art and Writing By Children On the Life of Play

Compiled by Richard Lewis

In this unique collection, Richard Lewis has gathered some of the poignant and insightful ways children have viewed not only their own playing, but also the very life of play as it takes place within the natural world and the universe at large. Selected from the results of an Arts and Education project of the Touchstone Center, these vibrant, poetic writings and artwork reinforce, once again, the necessity of play as a cornerstone of childhood – and the gift of every child to use their playing to shape their world – with imaginative artistry, freshness and exhilaration.
