Guitar Hero (Sketched)

So I was thinking about businesses that we could open on Cape Breton Island, and I had the thought that a nice idea might be to open a “Children’s Art Gallery” — an art gallery for and by the young at heart. It would feature [fine] art with children as part of the intended audience, as well as art created by young people (perhaps by students at the gallery if it was also an art school). With Cape Breton Island becoming an increasingly significant tourist destination, I think the idea has potential (and of course it could also exist online). I wouldn’t be surprised if it could be started with grants, and I’m sure there are many artists that would be open to the idea of donating paintings and other artwork. Definitely something that I’ll think about…

    That sounds like a wonderful idea Shannon,
    I’d absolutely love to see something like that.
    So sick of seeing good art swept under the rug just for lack of funding.

    Love the sketch for the Guitar Hero painting.

    My Mom, who is a first grade teacher, goes to a program every summer at this museum in Findlay Ohio. It is dedicated entirely to original art from children’s books. Each summer they bring in several children’s book artists and host a lecture series. Check it out.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
