I propose that art is vital – the very act of being human. Art is how we reach out to (and find) one another and build the communities and cultures in which we thrive. Art in Real Life focuses on how those arts play out in our daily lives, not in the works of artists that fill museum walls, concert halls, stages or bookstores. In Talk About Art I offer explorations and evidence of this concept from around the web. And my Parent Conversation Guides offer hints for helping our children appreciate art’s power in their own lives. Their artistic universe can become endless.
Welcome and enjoy! I’d love to hear from you. SA
