Last week the Gifted and Talented Art show took place at the Bemis Art School. Classroom walls were filled with amazing art done by elementary aged artists. From O’Keeffee inspired batiks to fresco paintings of Fra Angelico scenes, to native people inspired weavings, Van Gogh starry nights, Aborigine dotted paintings, Antarctica dioramas, and Zentangle Zebras… Art Around the World pieces made by these little creatives gave all a glimpse of their talent. Toward the end of the show, one of my students presented me with a lovely gift, a picture made just for me! With it’s bright colors and symbols of artistic expression, it has a special place in my studio and heart. Thank you Lilly for using your creative talent to make this piece… it brings me great joy!
