Voices Within: How Art Galleries And Dealers Open New Worlds

Vincent Van Gogh said, "If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint,' then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced." As a P-6 classroom teacher, I regularly use these words when conducting art sessions. Even young children can develop the notion that their artistic skills aren't good enough. I am constantly looking for new ways to improve my students' knowledge of art and give them confidence. I often visit galleries and invite artists to talk to the children.
