Do we have a little artist on our hands?

Yesterday was a very special day for our little man.
Jameson had a painting chosen to be displayed at the Talladega County Schools 24th Annual Elementary Art Exhibit.

We were completely shocked when Jameson brought the invitation home on Tuesday.  

We had no idea he was such a budding artist.

His picture, along with several other student's artwork, was displayed at the Heritage Hall Museum located in Talladega.

Everyone's artwork was displayed beautifully....just like a "real" museum.

It was a fantastic experience!

Here is Jameson's chosen piece:

Another wall of fantastic artwork:

This orgamie was made by a 5th grader at a local school:

This is a permanent fixture at the museum.  Jameson thought it was COOL!


Geeze, can't a guy just enjoy his lemonade in peace?

Of course, he had to go stand in the BACK where we couldn't get a good picture:

Jameson and his art teacher, Mrs. Allen:

It was HOT, HOT, HOT out there, but we were so pleased to see hundreds of parents and family members there to support their children.

We are so thankful that our schools still allow and promote art and music education in our schools, and reward the students for their hard work.

Who knows....the world's next DaVinci, Michelangelo, or Picasso could be coming from our very own school system!
