The Art School's Summer Trilogy - I

Hello to all, my name is Blair and I am the Marketing Intern at The Boca Raton Museum of Art. One of my tasks this summer includes visiting the Museumís Art School and exploring how it enriches and changes the lives of its students. I have been given this amazing opportunity to start this blog and observe and chronicle art exploration at their Youth Summer Camp. Through this journey of experiencing kids immersed in all forms of imaginative activities, I have come to reflect on what art means to me and how this passion is changing my own life. I plan to take you on this journey and hope you follow along over the next few weeks.

As I walked around the school for the first time I found children of all ages involved in all manner of activities. It is a place where children get to run around, play with hula-hoops, throw a ball in a large circle with friends and of course draw, color and create. It is the joy in these childrenís faces that makes the aura of this community happy and beyond satisfied.

During my first visit, I was captivated by one particular project that a young girl was doing and found it to be beautiful. The project utilized teddy bears and the overall story of the project was, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil, and See No Evil. She had created three-dimensional shapes on the front of the bear and on the back of it those same shapes became a city scape. I found this creative interpretation simply breathtaking. Perhaps learning to create art at such a young age exposes the mind and body to what creative expression truly is.

Growing up I never really had a chance to fully experience the visual arts and this experience is showing me what I missed. I played the flute for seven and a half years and danced but, as a child, I never put my hands on a paintbrush or clay. Now that I am in college Iíve begun photography classes and other creative endeavors and seem to have unleashed this unrealized passion.  To me, art is timeless and for that, it is something that just gets better and better!

I canít wait to explore what next week will bring. Bye for now.

What is a CVV Code?

CVV2 is a security measure for credit cards. Since a CVV2 number is listed on your credit card, but is not stored anywhere, the only way to know the correct CVV2 number for your credit card is to physically have possession of the card itself. All VISA, Discover, MasterCard and American Express cards made in America in the past 5 years or so have a CVV2 number. However Diners Club does not use a security code.

How to find your CVV2 number:
On a VISA, Discover or MasterCard, please turn your card over and look in the signature strip. You will find (either the entire 16-digit string of your card number, OR just the last 4 digits), followed by a space, followed by a 3-digit number. That 3-digit number is your CVV2 number.(See below)

VISA, Discover & MasterCard

On American Express Cards, the CVV2 number is a 4-digit number that appears above the end of your card number. (See below)
