Opportunities for Parents
As a parent, everything
your child creates is a masterpiece to you. Finger paintings, macaroni
mosaics, and crayon creations are all proudly displayed on the refrigerator
for months. Itís important to encourage your childrenís hobbies and interests
and to find fun and exciting ways to get them involved in the world of
art, but what about you? Do you have a love for art that you never had
the opportunity to develop? Have you passed your passion for art down
to your child and are you trying to give him or her the chance that you
never had to nurture that talent? Itís not too late for you to focus on
art more intently, either as a hobby and/or a new career.
Not all of the great artists, past and present, have received a formal
education in the arts. However, not everyone self-taught will be great.
The basic rule, that more education equals a better opportunity, applies
to art just as it does to most aspects of life. Education not only allows
you to increase your knowledge of a subject that interests you, but youíll
learn and practice the basic tools that will make you successful as well...
