When I was young I use to LOVE to draw. I would sit down with paper and pencil and draw cartoons, doodle, or draw what was around me. I remember in 5th grade we were told to draw something, anything we wanted. Our teacher said think colorful. I had no idea at the time that they were looking at our drawings to choose children to help paint a billboard. I remember I drew a forest scene with a toucan (to add color). I wish I could see a photo of what I drew know but we didn’t have social media back then so no where to post it LOL. I do have a few drawings I have kept from my later years.
When my boys were young I decided to turn their room into a safari like jungle.
Art was my favorite class, I only wish I had taken more classes as I got older to improve my skills. I turns out my daughter has inherited my love and talent in art. She amazes me with what she can do. This summer she was bored and sent me this adorable video of her drawings.
Because of my love for art I can’t imagine not having an art program in any school. This is why I’ve decided to support Yick Yo Elementary’s $25,000 goal to save the art program.
So you might be wondering how can I help support this great cause? Well it is very simple and you will be giving back so much at the same time.
