Encouraging the Young

Last evening I went along to my Grandchildrens school to help them celebrate their Art Fair.....highlighting all streams of the arts. I didn't get too many photos as I was very busy demonstrating my pencils to lots of enthusiastic fellow budding artists.
Loved these gorgeous wings....so did the Grandies. Each child in the school coloured a feather to make the wings.....beautiful!

The whole school had made beautiful works of art which their family could purchase to help fund raise for the school....it was gorgeous to see how proud they all were of their beautiful art pieces. My Granddaughter's Picasso inspired self portrait.
Sculpture of  his spirirt animal the Bat by my Grandson. He had written a lovely piece explaining why he feels it is....love kids imagination!

Music, singing, sculpture, painting, drawing, collage, indigenous art and dancing all were highlighted. My Daughter a teacher at the school held 2 ballet workshops....the Butterfly Ballet class was very popular and soooo sweet!
My beautiful Granddaughter popped by to make sure I was doing ok with my demonstrating lol!

It was a wonderful event and highlighted to me how VERY IMPORTANT art is to young people.....how it delights them and makes them stand taller to have created something to share with the world. They are so interested in all aspects of art. So WHY OH WHY the powers that be have reduced our childrens exposure to it in schools is beyond my comprehension! I almost had no voice from talking to and engaging with very interested children of all ages. Huge congratulations  to Runcorn State School for showcasing and encouraging ART! Their inspiration. ......
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
