I was so excited to be invited to teach a group of fifth graders at Hollis Elementary an art class. I gathered together with the kids to paint a vase of flowers that they will wrap up to give to moms, Grandmothers, aunts, or close friends for Mothers Day in May. This homeroom is a special bunch, and I was so honored to spend time with them talking art. I strongly feel that if you can get children at a young age and make art fun and approachable, you can give them a life long love of it.
