a gift given by the best Artist
a place of peace
a way to restoration
Eliana made this math sentence and drawing in kindergarten. I am so thankful that she goes to a school where the arts are encouraged. She was able to use art to help her remember Pop Pop, my grandpa, who had passed a few months before. Art, a way to help us process, grieve, remember, and treasure.
Eliana did this piece this year. I love her drawing. I hope she gets a better hang on spelling than I ever did.
Art, a way to say thank you to the neighbor who gave us a fish container and a fish.
Art has been a blessing to me. I struggled with reading among many other things growing up. When it is hard to read, everything seems hard. Yet, I had a teacher who used art regularly to help us learn. Those were the moments I was able to shine and feel like I was actually doing something right in school. In high school, it was the sweetest gift to be in art. I didn’t have an easy teacher. She pushed us out of our comfort zones and had HIGH expectations. An A was not an easy thing to get in her class.
I am grateful for the gift of a puzzle from my mother-in-law. I spent hours creating art and listening to music as a way to unwind from the craziness known as being a mom.
