Why do you try to understand art? Do you try to understand the song of a bird?
Along the way, I learned that I am an amazing art teacher—by my standards.
Multiple students and parents of students have told me for almost three decades how much their children enjoy art and look at the world in a different way because of my classes. And that is my standard.
Perhaps, my students will remember some artists or art terminology or acquire a favorite or think about creating art. I hope they do. But the goal is for my students to enjoy art—and for that enjoyment to be as accessible as their favorite books and games.
So, let’s cerebrate World Art Day on April 15th this year by enjoying some art, even if it is only a clever graphic design on your cereal box.
For fun, find and read If Picasso Painted a Snowman by Amy Newbold.
