A couple of years ago, the juniors and seniors I taught were turning in their art work for a special assignment. I asked a few of them if I could take their picture with their art work. This dear student had a dry sense of humor and decided to have fun with me.
It was important to see the art in my students, because I found I was inspired by the talented people I was teaching. I was in awe of their unique gifts and talents.
Knowing how talented my students were worked for me, because it made it so easy to teach them. When they knew that I knew how gifted they were…they usually did their very best work for my assignments.
I loved working with them and reminding them of the art -the goodness- found within them.
There is value in finding the art in others!
