Artists for Kids – Opportunities

“From prehistoric cave paintings to modern city graffiti, art is everywhere in the world. Art is essential to human expression: it gives form to our feelings, our ideas, and our imaginations. Some of us study art in school, while others create works of art on their own. Some of us like to look at art in books or on CD covers.
One of the best ways we can learn about art is to see the real works of artists both past and present. Original paintings, drawings, sculptures, prints, and photographs are usually found in collections that belong to museums.”
