Art with a Purpose
What can you make with a gazillion small pieces of colored tissue paper cut into little one inch squares? Flowers,of course! That's exactly what the students at Decatur Northside Elementary were making in art class today after a lesson about the famous artist Georgia O'Keefe. Early this month, the Benton County Farm Bureau Women's Committee purchased art supplies for this school. I was invited today by Mrs. Raymond, the art teacher, to see the supplies we donated and receive thank-you notes from the students.
Seventy plus years ago the first Farm Bureau Women's Committee in Arkansas was formed to make a difference in the rural communities. I'm proud to be working for that same purpose today as a member of the Benton County Farm Bureau Women's Committee!
