I know I have been missing in action for a while… busy creating fun projects with the kiddos.
In just a few short hours my school’s hallways will be filled with smiling faces and students pointing out their beautiful artwork. I have been hanging artwork everyday for 2 straight months right up to the last minute.
I always feel like there is always more to do but today a fourth grade boy came wandering down my way while I was hanging our Bottle Cap Bird and said to me
“Everything is so beautiful looking.
I love the explosion of colors in the hallways.”
That was it!
His simple yet to the point comment made my day. That was all I needed to hear.
Not a “great job”comment from administration (which is also nice to hear at times) but an innocent student who got the aesthetic experience of what displaying children’s beautiful artwork is all about. I shared it with the other art teachers and they agreed with me.
Happy Youth Art Month!
