Tuska's Be A Lion is a project of Healing Through Art.
Our mission is to encourage the incorporation of art
into the daily life of every child of every age and every community of every size.
Partnering with world-renowned cartoonist for the Muppets, Guy Gilchrist we introduce you to:
HEY FRIENDS! IT’S TIME FOR THE MIGHTY JUNGLE ARTIST JAMBOREE!
It is another beautiful day in the Mighty Jungle and Regis and Mimi lead a pride of teachers and young artists on an exciting day preparing for the Mighty Jungle Artist Jamboree.
Together we will learn that art is everywhere and everyone is an artist.
We will be introduced to a family of characters
that illustrate the value of creative exploration in
the health and happiness of our bodies, our minds and communities.
Regis and Mimi want everyone to see that creativity is inside all of us.
And it comes in many levels and it comes out in many ways.
Not everyone will paint like Picasso or sing like Pavarotti
and what a BORING world it would be if we all did.
The most important thing to remember is that
Picasso and Pavarotti could not build a tower like
you can with your building blocks, decorate cupcakes like you
or do the tricks you do on your skateboard.
Being creative means using your ideas to make art, have fun and solve problems.
THE POWER OF ART IS IN THE DOING.
Your drawings can hang in
the Louvre Museum in Paris, France or on a refrigerator in Paris, Kentucky,
YOU MADE IT!
You can sing in a band on the world stage or
stage a play for only you and your Teddy Bear,
YOU DO IT!
Paint it, Sing it, Dance it, Play it,
Act it, Make it, Write it, Say it,
When problems and worry have tracked you down,
Face trouble like a lion, strong and proud!
