The San Diego Arts & Culture Weekly Review

Throughout history, societies and communities that embraced the arts often found themselves at the forefront of social and political change – decades ahead of those that have discouraged or diminished the role of the arts in their societies.  Our rich history of social and political progress is due in no small part to the active and courageous artistic community that calls Southern California home. We hope that by highlighting the rising stars of our local art community on a weekly basis, we can help increase our community’s engagement with local art and the artists that devote their life to moving society forward.

We did a little watercolor painting in first grade today! I thought it was going to be mayhem with this group, but I have to tell you, I can’t remember the last time they were so quiet! I turned off the lights, told them that artists didn’t talk while they made art because they needed to concentrate, and other than the occasional, “Is this good so far?!” they were as quiet as mice! Honestly, I had had it up to HERE with a few of them earlier in the morning, and had threatened to make a few who had been disrespectful use crayons instead of using watercolors. But I forced myself to remember that the kids who push your buttons are the kids who often need a painting afternoon the most, and they’re not the only ones. Sometimes I need an afternoon of painting along with my students, too. And I think we all went home today feeling better because of it. #arttherapy
