When I was in Jr. High and High School, we were given free tickets to the State Fair of Texas. I started going to the Dallas Museum of Art which was in the Fair grounds. I had started taking private art painting class in grade school and Jr. High. Aunt Jewell had started taking classes and mom and dad let me take classes. We didn't have any art classes in grade school, or Jr. High. So the painting class was really important to me.

When I had a chance to go to the museum, I was able to see some really nice work by artists such as Henry Moore, Daniel Smith, Mondrian, and many others. Each time I came to the museum I and got to see the art, I learned new things. Since I didn't have art classes in school until high school, the museums became my art history class.

I had never seen any art until that first trip to the Dallas Museum of Fine Art. I have loved going to museums ever since.

I will be telling you about museums I have seen through the years and thoughts about art exhibitions each week We will be delighted to carry blogs and/or thoughts from other art lovers. Send me an e-mail to put your thoughts up.
