Fishing Tales Through Generations

Last year I caught my first prize fish.  I proudly posted its photo on the Internet.  It was almost as big as my grandson, who didn’t really appreciate the achievement.  Many kids today don’t know what a thrill it is to land one after decades of trying.  Fishing is something of a rite of passage that you want to share.  Catching one was special for me since I’d spent my youth just catching mosquitos at our city park pond.  Of course, my dad took me fishing; every summer we’d be off on one of those charter boats.  It must have cost him since he not only had to pay the charter but rent fishing gear.  We had no place to keep rods, reels and tackle in our city apartment.  Our preparation consisted of wearing our fishing jackets from Columbia, along with athletic shoes and sunglasses.

I had so much fun and signed up for a three hour workshop on shrink art I found it so relaxing that I have been making little shrink art charms ever since. The exhibit displays hundreds of pieces of intuitive art they created over the past five weeks and will be on display at the center through Wednesday, May 17.

The Art Of Success

The International Journal of Art & Design Education (iJADE) provides an international forum for the dissemination of ideas, practical developments, and research findings in art and design education. I recently received flack from a writer about using the digital medium, saying that digital artists can never be as good as the traditional equivalent, which frustrates me.
