Why Focus on Local Arts?

Oh My Goodness!  Have you looked, I mean really looked, at all the Arts in your community?

When I started to purposely seek out the local Arts, I was amazed at what’s out there.  Even in a small town area such as ours.  Even on a far from anywhere fire hall in a “town” that’s just a collection of houses.

So folks… I’m on a mission.  I’ve set a goal.  I’m going to push myself.  I will open my eyes to see and set my mind to notice the Arts all around that I’ve taken for granted.  I will look at the street Art.  I will appreciate the architecture.  I will speak to local Artists.  I will make the time to visit galleries.  I will look for local Arts and Artists when I travel.

Let’s face it.  We are busy.  We have stuff to do.  The urgent takes the spotlight.  Routines rule our lives.  Its like we have blinders on.  But no more, I say, no more!

I challenge you to join me on this mission.  What’s been hiding in plain sight in your area?

Welcome to my adventures in teaching Art outside of the public school system. I’ll share our projects and challenge myself and you to continually improve. So glad you stopped by!
