art projects

I've spent the last 20 years – almost my entire working life – employed by various museums.  I worked every position there is, from janitor all the way up to head art curator, but my favorite positions have always been child outreach.  It is not hard to explain why.  Although it is commonly believed in the art world that viewing and understanding art is something that is difficult and only can be achieved by a cultured few, in reality there is nothing further from the truth.  Anyone can appreciate what is beautiful – at least what is beautiful to them.  What most people don't have is not the ability to appreciate art, but the ability to create it freely.  That is what I love about directing children's art projects.
