I am so grateful for art being taught in public school. Art has such a
personal way of allowing us to express who we are and what we stand for.

Art is truly the only universal language of our world. The communication
that PEOPLE are important and so are things of beauty is frequently missing
in our hustle bustle society. Art offers so many therapeutic benefits that
need to be encouraged for personal and socieital growth.

Monet says "Everyday I discover more beautiful things" I believe that is a
tremendous challenge for the 1990s and still very much accomplishable,
especially through the eyes of an artist. You who teach art also radiate
that importance by your enthusaim for art and the beauty of expressing
BALANCE.

I am working at putting together a course in ways to combine art and social
skills in the classroom. So many of the principles of art are such good
examples for life and living tasks. Like BALANCE.

I am finding that as much as I appreciate this discussion group I am going
to need to soon withdraw my name because I do not have the time as a part
time employee to read through all of the messages.

Please direct any comments you may have for me about this directly to me at

Knowing you are out there teaching art is a great part of me knowing that
just as Monet did Each day I discover more beautiful things and so will our
future generations.

Be loving and gentle with yourself, so you will have the energy to be
loving and gentle with others and keep art alive for all of us.

Thank you,
Mary Harris
