Colour Touches the Soul Itself

Wassily Kandinsky:
Colours on the painter's palette evoke a double effect: a purely-physical effect on the eye which is charmed by the beauty of colours, similar to the joyful impression when we eat a delicacy. This effect can be much deeper, however, causing a vibration of the soul or an "inner resonance"—a spiritual effect in which the colour touches the soul itself.

This inspires kid's art projects, more kid's art, and more and more.

A joyful impression!
