Skateboarding as a Creative Practice

I have never been on a skateboard but I have always been intrigued by the fearlessness of the craft. So I was so pleased to find a series that discussed the connection between skateboarding and creativity. Here is one in the series which I hope you enjoy.*

Hey Robyn,

You know this video was really interesting. You know, I see skateboarding everywhere. But, my kids have never really been into it. I never thougth of the art as being left handed.

Also, I watched the video about you. You inspire me!!! Forgive me for not getting back to you from last week. My husband has been sick this month and it's been a busy, busy, stressful time. I just haven't had a chance to visit my favorite blogs.

also, I love the beehive bonnet. So cute!

My husband was so in to skate boarding when he was younger. We've got 3 in the basement that he treasures. From time to time, he still finds a skate park and rides...and he's 50! My kids have never gotten in to it and I'm kind of happy about that. In my area, so many kids skate board and so many like to play chicken with the traffic. Besides, even if my son was interested he wouldn't be for long because he'll be 16 next April and it's all about the car :))

That's a great clip. I can't wait to see more commentary like that...It's like the "art side of life." I love that guy, Jeff McFetridge. He and a couple of others were in a documentary called Beautiful Losers. I recommend it, obviously :)
