Why Follow The Poetry of Seeing?
So, why should I follow you on Facebook (or sign up on your blog)?! Well, The Poetry of Seeing has four ideas or core components driving its brand:
For Art Teachers (and Art Curiositists)
An art teacher writing to other art teachers is a given. Yes, The Poetry of Seeing is for Visual Art Educators.
But, Art Curiositist? Is that even a word?! No, it’s not. It is what I call many who will visit my blog or Facebook Page: people who have a limited understanding and/or interest in art, but are curious. In fact, they’re curious about many things. They just need a friend to give them the ‘low down.’ Therefore… Welcome, friend!
Oh, and let me just say that you are never too old to learn something about art. I’m a teacher but also an art advocate! Besides religion, art is the one quality unique to humanity; no other creature on this Earth creates art.
So, you’re not an art teacher, eh? That’s okay! Maybe I’ll start a Facebook group just for you. Keep an eye out (but, first, go ‘Like’ my Page so you’ll know when I do)!
Inspiration is everywhere in the Art World, but also all around us. From the magic of children’s art to exhibits at unusual venues like a local zoo featuring recycled materials, inspiration is a part of life. Learning to see it merely takes a little time and experience.
Why not take a moment, say “Yes!” to yourself and sign up for a little inspiration expressed in surprising ways?
For Reviews (of All Sorts!)
Whether you are looking for storage ideas, a new book to inspire your kids (or yourself!), a way to clean erasers, or even a worksheet teaching kids how to use a glue bottle, The Poetry of Seeing can be a resource and help for you.
For Local Art Classes
Kids. Grandkids. Nieces and/or Nephews. Or, all of the above! My home-studio classes for children and teens serve those in Southern New Jersey and Pennsylvania. For more information visit ThePoetryOfSeeing.com/classes.
