One of my life mantras, something I share with my students all the time, and how I have tried to live each day, is Do what you can, where you are, with what you have.
Make art about giving of your time, your resources, about the power of volunteering,about how much volunteering is needed. Or make art about having received the benefit of volunteers.

When I was a child, my parents, who very much lived lives of service, took us little kids with them when they volunteered, at migrant farm camps, at the soup kitchen, while working with refugee families or others, wherever their volunteerism took them. Today, I was blessed to work with amazing parents who are teaching their children by setting the same examples, modeling for them lives of service. The children worked with us, learning what I learned as a kid—that we are, in fact, our brothers’ keepers, and that, yes, a single act of kindness, of service, can make the world a better place.
Make art about what we teach children by our actions.

Make art about feeling unsafe, about steps you take to make yourself feel safe again, about taking down your own dragons.
