PEN&INKee^POSSIBILITIES: Seeing the world through a different pair of eyes

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

I’ll probably never learn to master any type of visual art. Those people who claim they can only draw stick figures? Yep, I am one of them. However, my artistic handicap does not stop me from appreciating what others can do. There has been a lot of ground covered to gain this appreciation.

I’ve toured the Vatican, the Louvre, the Tate, the Museo Reina Sofia; I’ve watched artists mold figurines from soft, palpable glass in Venice and I’ve observed artists painting peonies at the Denver Botanical Gardens.

Courses have been taken and books have been flipped through, but I believe the best education I have received on art came right from the source – an artist.

Taking Art Center Executive Director John Werenko’s art appreciation class opened my eyes to the visual arts in a whole new way. The colors have never looked richer, the light more illuminating or the artists’ intentions more clear.
