The Color Red

Red is an amazing color. If you were the color red, you could be just about anything you wanted!

POWERFUL.  If you were red,  you could be strong enough to make cars stop at a stop sign or stop light.

DELICIOUS. If you were red, you could taste delicious like an apple, a strawberry, a tomato or a cherry.

 FAST. If you were red, you could be fast! You could be a shiny red sports car or a great big firetruck rushing to save the day!
BEAUTIFUL. If you were red, you could be as beautiful as a rose or a poppy, as bright as a light on a Christmas tree, or as soft as a velvet bow.

People notice red, that is all there is to it.

So tell us, what would you be if you were the color red?

Sunshine and dandilions

Found on shewandersshefinds.com


Yellow is the row of sunflowers I planted around the sandbox.

The bright kernels on a cob of corn.

The sweet bouquet of freshly picked dandelions my kids bring me with big smiles on their faces.

The loud pants I wore to high school football games to show my school spirit.

The sunrise.

A new box of #2 pencils.

Yellow is happy

Van Gogh said yellow stands for the sun.  Are you the kind of person who likes bright sunny warm days?  Or more like me, who prefers a good storm?  Are you a yellow personality or more of a cool color by nature?

Our Young at ART Journey

Pablo Picasso once said, "All children are artists, the problem is how to remain an artist when he grows up."
We strongly agree with Pablo.  This quote has become somewhat of a theme for us.  We welcome you to the beginning of our journey with Young at ART and hope you will stay along for the ride! 
Our map is laid out. It curves through studios, galleries, and museums.  It climbs mountains of color, shapes, and forms, we'll visit with painters, sculptors, and teachers.  We'll carve through tunnels of clay, marble, and stone and brush by painted sunsets of pink, yellow, and orange!
Who knows what discoveries await us as we travel this road!  In the words of Dr. Seuss, "Oh the places we'll go!!"  Please join us in our journey through ART!
