  •  Absolutely excellent diary (5+ / 0-)

    I have two sons, ages 14 and 11, who are both budding artists.  The oldest is beginning to realize the political power inherent in many works of art.  Both pieces that you've shared are absolutely striking in their power to bring everyday problems to the forefront.

    We're lucky to have found a great Youth Art Collective in Monterey so that kids 14-22 years old have a place to explore their talents.  Most schools are losing their art programs and many kids planning to go to college can't find time in the high school day to add something as simple as a drawing class.   The Art Collective gives them a place to de-stress and to produce great art, no teachers, just mentors and their fellow artists for inspiration.  It's a wonderful place!

    The link in my tag line takes you to a diary about my son and YAC, just in case you're interested.

    •  wow, that looks like a great program (0+ / 0-)

      and Ryan sounds like a remarkable young man. He really stepped up through all the challenge of leaving his first girlfriend )-:

      Art heals and it helps us grow and evolve.

      Live life. Not too fast. Mostly walk. (or bike)
