"Let me laugh at nothing things"

Children Art created at home 2020


The title for this exhibit is taken from a line from one of the poems in THE GERANIUM ON THE WINDOW SILL JUST DIED BUT TEACHER YOU WENT RIGHT by Albert Cullum. This book is a collection of poems created by children that present the world seen through their eyes.


Have your child explore these following topics:



·         Something you love

·         Nature

·         Imaginary friend


·         Something you miss

·         Your mom and dad

·         The world


·         Something beautiful

·         Something silly

·         The Future


To see the world through a child’s eye is inspirational and innocent.  There are many writings that speak to the truth of that knowledge. The arts are a universal language that is only limited by our imaginations.
