Where Does Art Reside ?

Art Quote for the Day

2 Comments

Right now, at this very moment a dear friend of mine is sitting across the room on my couch with my husband. She is a retired teacher that  I worked with for several years when I was just starting out . We would have the best lunch time conversations about all sorts of things. She is brilliant and enlightened and intellectually stimulating . She is 74 and minimally understanding of all things that are computer oriented shall we say. She has purchased an IPad and now my husband is helping her with what she needs to know to use it.
As I sit here listening to them ….. She, asking questions, my husband explaining , I marvel at how far I’ve come in the past year! I didn’t have an IPAD a year ago, I didn’t have a blog  a year ago, I sure wouldn’t have thought that I would be teaching Honors students a class in how to use the IPAD to create art! I was where my friend is right now. She has a lot of stuff yet to learn and who knows what will attract her and get her going in an obsessive direction but I’m thinking it has to be alot like learning to read . Once the understanding happens, the world opens up in so many ways ….. you are instantly  connected to all of the information that the world has to offer. Have fun my dear friend …. have fun!

  1. Such a great analogy that it’s like learning to read. So true!
