Children’s Art Show
Last Friday, I got to put together a community art show featuring children’s work. I found a place to donate space, contacted art teachers to pull together some of their student’s work and enlisted some friends to help.
It was inspired by my son saying he wanted to open a kids’ art gallery. A friend said, “That kid is onto something. You should contact the cafe and see if they’re interested in hosting.” It snowballed from there.
Now, is it crazy to put on an art show because one of your kids mentions it? Well, yeah, it is. But it’s my kind of crazy. I figure if a kid comes to you with a dream that you can help turn into a reality? Well, that’s a lesson for life. If you dream it, and you work towards it, and you enlist the help of friends to get it done, you can accomplish just about anything.
Many thanks to all the kids, art teachers, parents, Atwater’s cafe, Dave, and my friends Jen, Danielle and Laurie.
When a community rallies, it can create something beautiful.
