Artists for a Better World has launched a book about children and art by Richard Rensberry of QuickTurtle Books called The Quest We Share, it is available on Amazon at https://amzn.to/2EmQDW5.
While there are many venues for children to do art, there are misconceptions alleviated by this book. The climate in the art world misses important aspects of art by relegating art to “feel good” or ‘therapy” or by dismissing it as irrelevant or by trying to monetize it.
The new book was written by Richard Rensberry and illustrated by Mary Rensberry, both AFABW members. It sheds light on aspects of art that make it vital. Rensberry said, “My wife and I are artists ourselves and we feel that artists carry a responsibility for building a better world.
There has been so much corporate and special interest manipulation of what constitutes art as being art that the real purpose of art has been lost. Something I have been trying to create my whole life is a Renaissance; I want a new generation of artists to understand their importance to the future of a sane and happy human race. The Quest We Share imparts the goals and creative spirit of a Artists For A Better World.”
