EVERY CHILD IS AN ARTIST
by Lucy Colket, age 9
Once upon a time there was a five year old girl named Elizabeth George who thought she wasn't an artist
One day in art class she sat down and started to draw
She tried to draw a horse but she accidentally drew a big line straight through his body
"Oh no" screamed Elizabeth
The art teacher ran over in a panic
She questioned Elizabeth
"What's wrong my dear?" she said softly
"I have wrecked my drawing I believe" Elizabeth said
"Oh Honey, it will be okay"
"You see, every child is an artist so you have to use your special artist head to fix the problem"
So, Elizabeth picked up her marker and drew more lines on to her horse
Then, she signed her drawing "E.G." and wrote on the top
For she had turned what she thought was a wrecked horse and made it into a wonderful zebra
"See" said the art teacher
"Every child is an artist"
