Public school art.
And the only reason Bossy is making that public school distinction is because Bossy knows many people who choose private school for reasons such as this: the limitless possibility for self-expression, and the available accessories such as kilns, looms, and easels.
All across the country, art programs have been cut from many public school budgets, so Bossy feels fortunate that her district keeps their program afloat thanks to things like donations of time and materials.
This is called trying to make due with much more of less.
It’s International Week at Bossy’s middle school, so Bossy’s daughter walked through the front door with this creation yesterday. It represents a mola design, which originated in Panama and consists of simplistic graphic images in bold colors over borders of other colors and other colors and other colors.
Which doesn’t stop it from reminding Bossy of similar work created in preschool.
