Live artfully!

I’m sharing something special with you this week!  My daughter, Ellie, wrote this in her sketch pad:

“Art is meant to be shared.  People enjoy art, and they love to look at it.  So make art.  It doesn’t matter if it’s drawing, painting, sculpting, or even taking photos.  It’s art.  It doesn’t even matter if you’re good at drawing or not, it’s art!  Even if you don’t like art, things like dance, music, singing, and drama are art.  It’s just the art of people.  So get out there and make art!”
