Unusual Saturdays keep happening to me lately. Since my soulmate is out of town during the weekends with work stuff, I find myself working late hours in the weekends.
What for – you may ask. Well, it is not like I am without projects and things to do. For example, I keep pushing myself to be more active on the blog, but it seems I never have my laptop nearby when I have inspiration. And when I have a laptop nearby, I lack inspiration.
I spent last night working late for a presentation I have to give to 31 children that are less fortunate. I will tell them about art, colors, forms, art history and many more. Since I will have to teach them art history, I decided that in the two week that I will be their teacher, I will travel with them through all the art that ever was – starting the Prehistoric Era and ending today. All of course on a small scale – how many things can someone learn at once?
I did not forget about fun games and questions that will make them explore art in a way that every child should – by finding by himself whatever his mind thinks there is to find.
I promise to tell you all about that, but until then, here it is some other thought that popped into my mind while I was writing about art history: my house looks like a prehistoric cave.
My soulmate has two occupations: being an amazing light designer and experiencing the art of painting. To my big surprise, this is what I found coming home one day – his very own version of prehistoric art. Or maybe it is contemporary art, we can never be sure! Like it?
That being said, enjoy your Sunday and make sure you do not forget about art – after all, art transforms ”eh” into ”eARTh” right?
P.S: There you have an Our Home vs. Prehistoric Caves comparison. See what I`m talking about?
