A Gift from God • by Angela Harris


For me, Art is a direct gift from God. A link that I will always feel to my creator. When I have an emotion that I don't know how to get through, I know I can call on that link to him by escaping in my Art.

Art through Life
In preschool I was scared of being away from home, so I sat at my little table and colored hundreds of papers covered in rainbows. In kindergarten, I was so shy that I was in tears, but quickly made friends during our daily art journal times. When I was a pre-teen, I learned that my maternal grandmother, whom I never got to know, was an artist. I started painting to bond with her. Teen years of course were hard — every chance I got to create was a moment of raised self-esteem. And finally when I became a wife and mother, Art supplied a way to care for my family. I am able to spend time with my family, make my home, and provide income. Art Saved me by letting me lead the life I want to lead.

Counting on Art
In my eyes, just as a human is capable of love and loyalty, there will also be disappointment. But the Art in you is a perfect gift from God that can always be counted on to get you through.
