you know I love kids... it has only gotten worse (or is that better?) since i had one of my own. so when my boy Mike asked me to participate in the Arts Workshop he had set up for this past Saturday, i was ALL over it! the event was at the Deep Ellum Community Center in downtown Dallas, so i saddled-up rolled out. even though i had to be there at the ghastly hour of 8:30 am (yes, freelancing from home has spoiled me) i was actually on-time and ready to rock! and rock it did! Mike and I did a drawing demonstation, but there were painters, a potter and graf artists in the house sharing the love of the art with these kids, who were mad eager to learn and show what they could do as well!
it's very rewarding to get a chance to touch somebody's life, especially kids. Artists are so seldom seen as valuable for teaching kids not only about art but also about life in general, but that's what makes artLoveMagic cool, 'cause that's what we do. i encourage artists to look for opportunities large or small to teach what they do.
