Every Child Matters

Every Child Matters. One of the greatest gifts possible would be to inspire. An even greater gift would be to inspire children. This past year I had been given the opportunity to inspire 1,190 ART STUDENTS EACH WEEK! The idea for my piece titled "Every Child Matters" came to life while trying to find a way to create a collaboration which would include each of the students that I teach per week! My students ranging from PreK-5th grade were instructed to dip a finger in acrylic paint organized by color per grade level, then I gently helped guide each individual finger to add one single dot in a pointillism-like manner onto the canvas. Each dot matters, as every child matters. Creating a painting using a single dot made from each individual student demonstrated to them how they can be different in color, age and grade but unified when collaborating to create one piece of art. 100% of Selling price will go toward art supplies for my students. Thank you, Michelle Fuller
