What’s Art Got To Do With It?


Most children have little trouble expressing their creativity. Just ask any mother who has had to clean crayons and markers off of a freshly painted wall. Providing toys that allow your child to get creative encourage imagination and allow her to learn by doing.

When my boys were this age, the Nerf arsenal of weapons showed up pretty high on their birthday wish list. Nerf weapons are really still one of the better toy bargains out there; for $7.99, you have your pick of the Xtreme of the Maverick Nerf guns. Remember back-of-the-door basketball hoop sets? Nerf still produces this popular birthday toy for kids of all ages, for a mere $3.99.

Low Temperature Cooking: For slow cooking and smoking, you may want a very low temperature. A gas grill’s lowest temperature is a single burner on low which may be too high. A charcoal grill can use just one briquette.

For my boys room I have this bin thing. It’s like a shelf but it’s not. It has three bins per row, and is layered with three rows. There is a total of nine bins. In those bins go the following…Bionicles, little cars, little action guys, legos, insects or creatures, crayons and markers and such, & cards such as baseball and Yu-Gi-Oh along with little papers that MUST be kept. There are two bins for the matchbox cars and hot wheels because they have so many. There are many types of bin storage units and they really work great. When the boys want to play with the cars they grab the car bin. When their done they put it away.

Why is it free so often? Well there is an easy answer to that question! Portland would like to widen the amount and variety of the art community. They want to inspire young people to stay interested in the culture of art. Easier access to this world of art will help introduce art to those who may not have been interested in it before. They want to give everyone of all ages the opportunity to celebrate the beauty and diversity of the art community.

Des (somewhat panting) gives Brad one more chance to wow her (or even utter a word) and then after he fails to impress her, she kindly rips it off like a band aid. She sends him home and Brad is forced to walk down the same long flight Hobby Boss 135th GCT 155mm AU-F1 Step By Step Full Build of stairs he just climbed.

Leonardo’s greatest painting was often believed to be the Last Supper, not the Mona Lisa. So what about the Mona Lisa itself as a painting? I decided to take a look at the techniques that Leonardo used to make this portrait. The portrait uses a pyramid shape, her head being the top of the pyramid and her hands being the base. The painting was created using Leonardo’s sfumato technique. This technique took a great deal of time. Sfumato was used to create a smoky or hazy look and there were no clear lines. Leonardo is perhaps the greatest master of this technique.

“Abbey Road”: When deciding which album to rank first, I used a simple criterion: which Beatles album do I listen to the most? And this is it. After years of pushing the boundaries of what could be done on record, The Beatles decided here just to make an album. Of course it included new wrinkles, including the blend of songs on side two in which one track flows into the next, but it’s notable for its first-rate tunes. George Harrison makes the record, as he steps up with his finest songs for the group, giving the album three successful voices.
