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. Lately, a number of art dealers have been willing to help students appreciate that there are many genres of art. I have learnt a lot too, although my artistic skills remain mediocre! In this blog, I will discuss interesting information I come across about various art galleries and dealers. Please sit down, enjoy and don't splash too much paint on the carpet!
