Congratulations! Children's Integrated Art Workshop Graduates

Congratulations! Children's Integrated Art Workshop Graduates
Dr Abe V Rotor 
Organizer and Instructor

Children need a break.  But not to indulge on TV and computer, and complacency.  In fact they don’t find relief and fulfilment from these gadgets.  Instead, they need to express themselves, and not to adjust to what the machine dictates. 


What better activity to offer kids on a Sunday afternoon,
but an on-the-spot painting session under the trees,
their shadow intermingling with them and their work,
urging them to just-do-it, you-can-do-it, and let-it-go ,
the creativity through the inner eye, from the inner self,
befriend “The Little Prince” when in doubt, when bored,
and discover you are not alone in this world.

You may take pride in having a state-of-the-art cell-phone, but not more than a painting you yourself made. A gadget can’t be part of you, but a piece of art you made – painting, melody, story, verse - is your own. It is part of you. It is a prize you give yourself and no one else can take it away. It is a lifetime achievement. In fact, it is your legacy.

Kids in the neighborhood and from afar come to experience the adventure of integrated art under a common denominator called talent.  Many ask - and doubt - if they have the talent at all.  I assure them they have. Each person has, in fact under a wide profile of eight realms. Many don’t realize this potential. Kids see the world “complete” and “instant” from food, toy, music, show - to instant relationship. Why bother when it’s there at fingertip? Perhaps we, grownups must tell them the truth.  Life is never designed this way. Good life is earned and it must be earned well.
  
Art evolved – and still is – through movements or schools, in this simplified order: primitive or ancient art (drawing in caves), realistic that is true to the subject, classical (perfection and timelessness is the essence), romantic (mainly for the elites), realism for the grassroots, impressionism and expressionism (gateway to modern art), and modern art is usually referred to as abstract, which blossomed into various and virtually free expressions.

 
  
Kids learn early in life the struggle for excellence, not in the classroom or street, but in themselves. The greatest struggle is with oneself – it is the biggest triumph, but it can be the biggest failure, too. Yet there is always the opportunity to conquer that opponent. This is the road to excellence. Each day you become a better person, ad infinitum.

Take time out with Nature from TV and computer,
from loafing around. Nature is your best teacher.
