Isn’t one of everyone’s favorite fictional high school heroes Ferris Bueller? I believe he said it best “Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
Recently, I watched my three children get very excited about a sticker in a toilet bowl. It was a wonderful moment for me, mostly because it wasn’t in our toilet. I love when they get excited about color variations or patterns they see for the first time and, now, art in obscure places.
It has become important to me that our children see that freedom of expression. Will that infamous toilet sticker give my kids ideas? Probably.
The first time one of our twins, Willow, held a marker she made art on the wall above our couch. We’ve left this installation piece up for almost two years because, honestly, next to puppies, toddlers are the epitome of “this is why we can’t have anything nice,” which is also what I’ve named Willow’s art piece. Her spacing and layout skills have since become more beautifully chaotic.
Art Galleries are now a place they request to go, and I hope it lasts their lifetime. I very much look forward to taking them to the new Punk Rock Museum that opened here in Las Vegas.
Stay tuned and tucked in because that’s another artsy tale for Kate’s Corner.
