Cub Scout Archives: Bear Elective 9 - Art
Art is not just pictures. An artist’s skill is used to make pictures and sculptures that tell a story and are pleasant to look at. That is what art is all about. Statues and stained glass windows are made for the same reasons. Study the art around you and try your hand at making your own.
