While elephants can be trained to paint, and ancient cave drawings resonate across the ages, it’s clear art is a universal language. But daily modern life is spent balancing duty and distraction, and many of us don’t feel all that talented. Is the goal of art the product we make, the process of creation, or both? With appreciation for the spark within, there might just be fireworks if we feel free to explore. If you’d like to share a brief story about your artistic journey, this is your invitation. The coffee hour can include “show and tell” examples.
