Water is Life

Water is Life
It’s one of those rainy, soggy New England days and one can only hope that in #PatriotsNation, despite all the team’s injuries, that we get another win this evening. But onto the point of today’s post, which if any parents and teachers happen to be reading, it’s a Thursday contest you don’t want to miss. Just in from the Landscape Architecture newsletter, it’s worth the click on this link about a National Art Contest that focuses on Smart Water Use. This ‘Water is Life’ Classroom art and mural contest is meant to engage students from grades K-12 while bringing together art and research, exploring the many ways we use water throughout the United States. 

So there you have it – let’s get kids engaged. It’s a great way to boost the spirits on a rainy day including research, design and art as part of the display. As Julia Cameron reminds us in ‘Finding Water: The Art of Perseverance’, “Making art has taught me that the tiniest smidgen of progress is something to be cherished.”    Find out more details by clicking here. This is when I wish I was a kid again.

#GoodMorning #WordlessWednesday

#GoodMorning to the last of the warm fall days.
Simple but brilliant fall colors by the pond.
Enjoy the brilliance of fall.
Wherever your path leads you today, let it be somewhere peaceful, colorful, and full of fall.
As Ed Catmull points out in Creativity Inc., Overcoming the Unseen Forces that Stand in the Way of True Inspiration, "For all the care you put into artistry, visual polish frequently doesn't matter if you are getting the story right."
