It's like horticultural therapy. If I hadn't studied art in school and later college, I wouldn't see things the way I do now. The same holds true for botany and journalism. I was lucky to get a well-rounded education. I wonder about my own children sometimes. ~~Dee


I admit that I am so not an artsy, creative person. It's totally not my thing. I love to view art, I admire many, many objects. I think I have a pretty good sense of taste.

But doing art with children? If I didn't teach preschool, I would mostly skip it. It's too much work, too much mess, so much chaos.

Yes, I am results driven.

I am thankful that art is taught in the schools. It is a vital part of childhood and has countless benefits. I've just never delved beyond the superficial admiration stage. But I am glad there are others who share their efforts with people like me.

The red artist in your post? Too sad.
