Art is Life
Kennedy (age 10) and Parker (age 8.5)
I attended my nieces' Art Festival tonight where the art work of grades 1 - 12th is exhibited... I was pleased to see such a strong art program in place at a school since in Calif there seems to continually be an outcry at how art programs have no funding available and therefore must be eliminated from the schools- even though it's known how beneficial to development the arts are, for children of all ages.
Tonight I found myself most drawn to the works depicting dogs...
Paintings, drawings, pastels, sketches, mosaics, wire forms, clay sculptures...they all
demonstrated how at a every age, the family dog is indeed an integral part of the family unit.
As it should be.
