Save Our Schools

I am (again) honored that my work is part of the National Gallery of Artful Resistance on the fabulous web site and in the art show for Save Our Schools: On the March to Save and Transform Public Schools. A giant THANK YOU to Becky Smith for inviting me to be a part of the program. 

Imagine is a 2D Mixed Media drawing and painting on fabric and paper collage on wood panel. The boy is my oldest son taken from a photo from when he was 6 years old. The original hangs in his room. I painted it because I want both my boys to know that they indeed "can do most anything". I believe that imagining possibilities leads to creativity and that creativity leads to living a life of fulfillment and joy. I want them to know that they can identify their own talents and gifts and in doing so design and map out what they want their lives to be. My hope is that schools and most importantly, the politicians that run the school system, realize the importance of creativity in learning and that how kids learn, not just what they learn, is crucial.
