He who deliberates and moves the brush intent upon making a picture, misses to a still greater extent the art of painting, while he who cogitates and moves the brush without such intentions, reaches the art of painting. His hands will not grow stiff; his heart will not grow cold; without knowing how, he actually accomplishes it. Chang-Yen-Yuan c. 845
As you see, Whapmagoostui is my new home and for a time, you will see posts that celebrate the young people of this community. The students I most closely work with have just entered high school and I know one of their favourite subjects is visual arts. One of my joys is to share that love of art with them, and so I will introduce you to the First Artist of the Week, a young First Nations Cree teenager named Beyoncé Fleming-George who was the first to finish her circular design in primary and secondary colours and moved also to be the first to complete her own personal colour wheel. She enjoys being first and is very proud of her accomplishments in visual arts! Bravo, Beyoncé!!
