Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up. As you grow up you start to lose your enthusiasm for even the smallest joys that life offers, and your imagination starts to wane. As a small child you were scared of the dark, you imagined monsters everywhere and were fearful of everything unknown. Waking up and seeing the start of a new day was filled with wonder and awe. Most adults no longer feel this way and they have lost touch with their inner child, forgetting what it felt like to view everything with a sense of excitement. Children are extremely creative but we lose this as we age unless we are careful to hold on to our inner child. Those who manage this are the artists of the world, the painters and sculptors who create wondrous works of art that inspire and motivate. There is nothing wrong with remaining child like as you get older as long as this means staying in touch with your inner artist and retaining a sense of joy and wonder in your life.
