UK class reminds me to never be afraid to do stuff I’m not good at

A class at the University of Kentucky took some of the themes I write about in Where Am I Wearing? and turned them into art.  It’s awesome when something you made inspires other people to make things, but that’s not what I love most about this project.  That would be the fact that many of these students weren’t art majors.

From University of Kentucky News:

The UK Core “Pathways to Creativity” course awakens in some students new interests and talents.

“I really have absolutely no art background, and I kind of surprised myself in this class. I really liked working with watercolors, because you kind of have the most freedom to do what you want. I actually did a painting that almost got submitted to an art contest,” said business management freshman Emily Hubbard, who plans to take more art classes in the future.

The students talking about the project:

I took piano lessons for 11 years, but I was never good at it. Still, I enjoyed it.  It  made me think different and sometimes it even made me feel different.  I hope I’m never afraid to do stuff that I’m not good at. I should probably do that more. We all should.

I had heard about this class and the variety of majors it had attracted. It seems that many students found it fulfilling way beyond their expectations when they chose to enroll. Kudos to a creative and dedicated teacher!

Today, I went to the beach with my children. I
found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put
the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit
crab inside and iit pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!

having side effect , othe folks could take a signal. Will probably bbe again to get
