Win a painting, help a child.
My favorite Picasso quote…ok, ONE of my favorites is :
It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child. ~Picasso
Why not encourage and enable ALL children to express themselves through art?
I was a lucky kid. I grew up drawing, doodling, painting, creating. I believe that art should be a part of every kid’s life. It should be part of their school curriculum, it should be taught like science or math. They should be encouraged to express themselves and experiment with materials. I want every child to experience what I did.
I spent some time teaching art to preschool and elementary school children. They taught me as much as I taught them. I appreciated the freedom in which they approached it, the raw and uncorrupted ideas they transformed into their very own natural and original expression.
I believe in the value of these experiences. ArtReach San Diego brings these opportunities into the classroom. It provides children with hands on experiences in visual art.
