Our theme this year is that of the land, sea, and sky. With so much negativity in our current world, our art students are focusing on what we each have in common – our planet. That although we as humans are different colors, shapes, and sizes, we share so many similarities. We live on the same Earth and under the same sky, and we all want to be treated with kindness and respect. As Albert Einstein once said:
“Our task must be to widen our circle of compassion, to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
