Since I'm on a Nicholas kick, here's another "it doesn't get much better than this."
Monday night his Mason Elementary School had a Monet's Garden art show for the K-5 grades. It didn't take long to figure out that each grade had the same theme for its picture but you saw each child's own creativity at work with the "ingredients" provided. Variations on a theme. Hmm. Wonder what Monet would think of that?
But the fun, of course, was the presentation! There were myriad panels set up all over the cafeteria and you actually had to search for your child's piece, or, as we did, ask for the grid location. As they say, Presentation is Everything! And not just for the kids. It really made you feel like you were in an art gallery. Amy was able to buy the framed original (only parents or designated others could do so). Then the rest of us got to buy reproductions :)
Okay. So someone has found a great way to make a buck! All power to them because it worked for all us gluttons, popping our buttons over our own budding Monet's. Talk about Art Appreciation. It really doesn't get better than this!
