When we were monkeys

What does the title make you think of?

In school the group of 4 and 5 year olds make utterly entertaining art. I like to call them The Art Monkeys, because they display such lightness of being through their unconditioned expression. A playfulness I would like to be inspired by every day. (you can read about this in the category Early Work}

The funky monkeys below are the latest gig by The Art Monkeys, they were presented hanging from a paper tree in the school corridor.
