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!
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!
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. ......
