“It’s so much darker when a light goes out than it would have been if it had never shone.” ― John Steinbeck
The wonderful thing about art is that it fills our lives with light, creativity, symbolism and, most importantly, it asks us to stop what we are doing and reflect. Pieces of ‘art’, these wonderful glimpses of light in the darkness, are not made simply. If you watched the thoughtful brushstrokes at work in the art room you would know that the paintings that seem to carry the most meaning are the ones most carefully loved.
Today we have no art to show you on the P4Y blog because we have no art ready to show! Now, that may surprise you, seeing as the art room is always a hive of activity. But, as one of the individuals who photographs the art work I respect that sometimes things aren’t quite ready for an audience. Out youth have been hard at work over the past few weeks and it is exciting to see so many of them in the midst of exploring their creativity.
But don’t worry! I assure you next week we will have some new for you to admire, and a little story about the youth who struck a match in the darkness.
