We've had a few field trips for school recently where we toured facilities we might be assigned to intern at. Todays trip was to an Abilities Center where those who are mentally challanged (and others) learn skills to work in the world. OMG Can i tell you! As far as a day job as far as something to pay bills while I work on my fairytale and art...i want to teach art to the mentally challanged. Absolutely. much more than teaching to children. I practically cried when i was there. everyone was so happy and everyone showed it. big huge smiles and everyone happy to do their little jobs that they were learning. I would love to teach these people to collage and learn about picasso and matisse, have them make their own paper cut outs and JOURNALS oh good lord can they keep a journal? I need to find out.
I must get a job with these people ; )
