Art Is…

I came across an article a few years ago that got me thinking. It was regarding a project to bring art to young students at a middle school some years ago when teaching art in school was already being pushed aside for various reasons. The students were asked, “What is art?” There were several quotes from the students and I can’t share just one. Each of them struck true.

Art is the colors and textures of your imagination.  ~Meghan

Art is your personal diary where you may color your thoughts and emotions on a page.  ~Sara

Art is a shadow of what a person is thinking, a small glimpse of what they hold inside.  Little secrets, regrets, joys… every line has its own meaning.  ~Sarah

Art is your emotions flowing in a river of imagination.  ~Devin

Art is an adventure that never seems to end.  ~Jason

Art is pictures straight from the heart.  ~Ben

Well said, all of you. I wish I knew where these students were today to see how art has, or has not, stayed with them.

Carry on.
