Celebrate Art!

I grew up in a rural Appalachian area in south eastern Ohio (son of a coal miner). We did not have art until high school. The arts (all the arts) were not celebrated or emphasized. It is kind of amazing I went into art education having very little exposure to it as a young person.

 I often watch the news online from back home, and was excited to see a segment featuring a high school artist!  I WAS SO EXCITED!!!  They were actually celebrating art!  I just had to share.  I don't know the student or his family.  I did not attend this high school.  I don't know this art teacher.  
It doesn't matter.  I want to #elevateart / #elevatearted ! We need to support and encourage the arts, and allow people to see the importance for students to have access to art education!
