Outdoor Art show in rainy day!
This week, an outdoor art show will be held at local gallery Gallery North. Looking at the weather forecast, it says it will continue to rain. Of course, since it is done at a booth inside a tent, there is no need to worry about getting wet in the rain, but perhaps the number of visitors will decrease? What does an art show look like on a rainy day?
A few weeks ago, my child wrote a storybook about a rainy day in a picture book-making class I took with them.
The rainy scenery that a 7-year-old child sees is frustrating, but it's like another form of play. The ending of this book also makes my heart happy. I plan to publish this book with my child soon.
As I was making this book with my child, I thought about rainy days. Adults don't like rainy days anymore. Children get excited about using pretty umbrellas when it rains. Also, when a rain puddle appears, they go into it and splash around to play. For children, everything is play.
Maybe what if we held a rainy day art show in the children's world? I wonder if my works will already get wet from the rain. Wouldn’t it be a hassle to use an umbrella and carry luggage? I worry that because of the rain, fewer people will come, etc. But kids might think of an art show with more things to do because of the rain. I too would like to wait for the art show with the heart of a child.
