Life and Art in Charleston 107- creative kids inspiring peers

"I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free."
-Michelangelo 

Sometimes the best way to inspire children is to show them the creativity in the minds of their peers. We could not believe the ideas that grew from these simple assignments - draw a duck, make a birdhouse. The longer you linger and really look, the more you stand in awe of what can be created out of a few materials and a lot of imagination. On display now at the Main Library on Calhoun St. in downtown Charleston:

The 2014 SEWE Kids For Conservation Birdhouse Competition featuring art by 9th-12th graders in Berkeley and Charleston Counties: Here are some of our favorites...

-coke can octopus  

- tin can owl

-paint sample whale 

-sheet music piano


Also at the library, paintings and drawings by students from schools around the state featuring winning artists in the duck stamp competition ( some as young as five years old - amazing!)


Tune in next week for our favorite art classes and camps in the area.
