It is said...
"A picture is worth a Thousand words".
As an Art teacher
I don't know how many times
I said that to my students,
to encouage them to be "Artists"
for 50 minutes, once a week.
But it all came together
when they saw THEIR picture
up on the wall in the school hallway.
My favorite thing was to walk down
the hallway and hear a sweet voice say,
"right there Mom, thats MY picture".
Sometimes I would catch a teenager,
that never claimed and interest in 'ART',
staring at a Masterpiece, they created.
A THOUSAND WORDS could not
describe the heart felt Joy in me,
knowing I was a small part of that
moment of pride, and pleasure,
stirred up in the heart of that child.
I hope you get the picture.
