"Artists should always think of themselves as cosmic instruments for storytelling."
~ Ted Lange
Fridays ought to start with sunshine and blue skies... and this one did. Now, late in the evening, the wind is dancing wildly outside in the darkness and the cold is tapping at my window glass. Inside, I'm warm and cozy, sipping my mug of hot tea and listening to my six year old chatter on and on. He is already a "cosmic instrument for storytelling" and an artful little fellow. Perhaps he will help me out with the art-related lesson plan I have to write for school this coming week!
This week it was watercolors and woven paper in art class, along with scissors, glue and lively conversation. Good stuff! Next week, African-inspired face masks from felt. Don't you wish you could come and play with me?
Wherever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you color and comfort and joy!
