“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.” -Pablo Picasso
Wonderful artists have figured out how to express their talents. A local artist named Jon Smith is one of the talented and benevolent locals in our community who graced us with his gorgeous art and his deep kindness. See his website at www.jonsmithart.com.
I am privileged to have Jon as a friend and a neighbor since I moved to Florida. In true good-guy style Jon donated his time and expertise to teach our kids at the Community Learning Center their first professional art lesson.
It was such a wonderful experience for everyone and CES proudly provided all of the art supplies so that the kids could bring home a beautiful work of art for Christmas!
This was another connection made that left an inspiring mark upon our community’s future artists.
