THE ART CRITIC
I'd been working
on a Princess drawing for some kindergarten girls to color during
Aftercare. On my way to xerox the finished product in the office, I
stopped in the Teacher's Lounge. As I prepared coffee, a 2nd grade boy
came into the room.
"I'm getting tea for Ms. Thea!"
he proudly declared his mission. Then he happened to notice the drawing
I was holding.
"What do you have there?" he
"Oh, it's a drawing I've been doing,"
"Let me see," he said.
I placed the picture on the table for his perusal.
He seemed to study it for quite awhile. Then he looked straight up at
"Draw the Civil War!" was his
delphic comment, and he was gone, with his tea, from the room.
