I try very hard to teach my kids that art is everywhere and that it's in the eye of the beholder. While a beautiful skirt is art to Peanut, Monkey can find art in the colors on the back of a beetle.
I saw this following clip months ago after listening to a story about it on NPR. I am sure many of you have seen it but I wanted to share it anyway. It's a perfect example of taking the ordinary things in life around you and seeing the art within it.
Birds on the Wires from Jarbas Agnelli on Vimeo.
It embodies what I want to teach my children, that art is all around them. It' s whatever they see and hear and imagine. It's what makes the world a more beautiful place.
How clever! I will never look at birds on the wire the same way again!
As soon as the video started I could see the music through the birds. I've played the piano since I was 5 and so for whatever reason I see stuff like that and I "see" the music. Thanks so much for sharing that's totally cool. And thanks so much for stopping by my blog today to help make my day in the SITS spotlight a fabulous one.
that is so amazing! thanks for the great reminder :) Stoppin' by from SITS <3
