Today, Time Out Challenges presents a wonderful new challenge. It is an "Inspired By Words" challenge spotlighting a quote by Robert Henri ~
“Paint the flying spirit of the bird rather than its feathers.”
This quote that was chosen for this particular challenge is in homage to a worldwide celebration that takes place on or about September 15th every year - International Dot Day. Have your heard about it?
I have the great pleasure and privilege of working as a librarian in a PreK-8 school. What a fun and adventurous way to journey through my work days! I love books, and I especially love children's books. A couple of years ago, my awesome art teacher friend introduced me to a book called The Dot by Peter C. Reynolds. It is the story of a little girl named Vashti, who believes that she cannot draw, but her art teacher's encouragement leads her to change her mind.
I fell immediately in love with the book, and then I came to find out that since it's publication, a worldwide movement of sorts has grown with the intent to celebrate the power and potential that creativity can inspire. Imagine the power and potential of millions of people around the world connecting, collaborating, creating and celebrating all that creativity inspires and invites. This challenge is the Time Out Team's way of celebrating creativity. We here at Time Out hope you will let your creative flag fly, play and celebrate with us!
