Drawing on Earth is back working with the Mt. Diablo Unified School District. MDUSD is located in the San Francisco Bay Area in Northern CA. We have been hired to come back and chalk draw at ten elementary schools. This is the 2nd and 3rd we’ve been to these schools. It’s great because many of the kids have memories of this.
I could write a book about all of this, and I will. Each kid, each drawing, teacher, principal, janitor, and assembly is a story about creativity. Most awesome, some sad. Some schools have NO art teachers, no parent art docent program, poor school, STEM without an A, without Art. I can literally see it on the playground, kids are not drawing, not even shapes, they just color.
Then there are some schools, a charter art school, school’s that just have a lot more art awareness and knowledge that the Arts are key to whole brain development and connect kid’s to their soul.
