These are crazy times for sure, and don’t let them be an excuse to be off center. The Arts, all the arts are one of the main forces to help stay the course, to use your time and energy wisely, going in and exploring the unseen worlds in yourself, and then share this with all of us. “You are the one you have been looking for.”
Creative Blessings to all,
~MLW, Drawing on Earth, and the ZOO
Drawing on Earth is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that Connects Art and Creativity to Youth and Communities Around the World. Our first project set a Guinness World Record for the largest chalk drawing. We covered 90,000 sq. ft. of pavement, had 6,000 people helping, most of them elementary school kids, and we got a satellite to take a photo of the art. So far we have drawn on 3 continents and work with approx. 30,000 kids.
