Not too many years ago, an artist used pencil, paint, paint brush and some sort of paper or canvas.Â I still have pictures that our daughters drew when they were toddlers.Â Viewing art has a way of opening our minds to new memories, thoughts and ideas.
Today there are many ways of creating art.Â Today I would like to spotlight some members who create art of some sort. Grab a jacket and umbrella (yest it is raining) and letsÂ go to the art exhibitsÂ in the Gather community.
Â I hope you enjoy all of these!
Cameras have evolved so much in just the last decade.Â Do you remember the times of cameras that required black & whiteÂ film?
You will have to click on the links to find out who posted these posts and/or photos.
There are many members of the Gather community who either draw free-handed or use computer programs to form art.

For the next five weeks Gather will feature a new tip in the Family Channel homepage. A Smells So Clean Discussion Guide will be created and live on Gather for members to enjoy. Leave your comments for this weekâ€™s topic in the comment fieldÂ of the above post Â by Thursday, March 3rd. Each weekÂ gather will also feature a tip from the Pine Sol website.
This weekâ€™s tip from the Pine-Sol site is: "Gather all your cleaning products together and edit. To save time, money and storage space, look for multi-tasking products that you can use in every room and on many appliances and surfaces - like Pine-Sol Brand Cleaner, which is safe to use on wood."
So as you can see, even if all 20 spaces are filled for the 25 points, you can still have your comment spotlighted in the Family Channel Group.Â How cool is that!?!
How do you teach your family the importance of keeping a clean home?
