2010 THE YEAR OF VALLEY ADVENTURES
Gary Fredburg, Michael Stevens and I were at California State University Northridge this last week to discuss the exciting concepts for Museum brochures by Professor David Moon's VISCOM students. We decided to visit the University's Art Museum while we were there. On the way we encountered a window display of Dr. Ken Sakatani's Children's Art 380 class. Called "Twist Tie Fantasy" it demonstrated clearly to the three of us, how important in this day of cutbacks, poverty of families, and lack of supplies, how important it is for future art teachers to use simple, found objects to open the world of art to children.
It was difficult for me to capture photos of the Twist Tie art without at glare, so I've taken the liberty of
putting new backgrounds for the work. (click on the images to enlarge and enjoy.)
