Little Hands, Big Hearts

The creative arts play an immense role in the transformation of thinking.  Each life can be full, rich and vibrant through the simple act of creative communication.  That is what the arts foster.  In each of our lives there are ideas that simply cannot be adequately expressed in words, and require the subtleness of an arts expression. It is so with music, dance, and many plastic arts - plastic means to bend.

These little art projects came from little hands. Their ideas about what is beautiful about Ukrainian people find expression in small statuettes, hand formed of clay, and painted in the bright, happy colours of hope and dreams.

Note the embroidered messages, the flowers, the star and colours.  Note the smiling faces, confident and proud.  Note the traditional clothing, practical aprons, festive wreaths, practical belts, and strong postures.   Ready for work, for play, for work and for creating community together.  

Many of us have celebrated our identity in the creation of Ukrainian arts.  It is a language that communicates over time and space - straight to the heart.  Lovely!
