Feels columnist is unfairly picking on children
Mr. Slim Smith, shame on you!
Is there so little to write about in Columbus that you have to pick on children’s art work? Children learn by doing. Sure their first efforts might not be perfect but to the child, he/she is working on a masterpiece.
Did you think that one of these children might be handicapped or disabled? They do the best they can and are so happy to accomplish anything. So are their parents and grandparents.
I am sorry that you can’t tell that the flower is bigger than the house is because the child loves flowers. I am sorry that the drab color combinations explains how he/she is feeling today. They like sunshine too.
You say “a good community newspaper is built on its relationship with its readers.” This relationship won’t last long if you pick on the community’s budding artists.
Finally, I want you to know that this 87 year old great grandmother has the most beautiful artwork on her refrigerator!
