Crayons and Airplanes
I just read a touching story about an airline flight attendant who passed out crayons and paper mats to her passengers, encouraging them to draw during their flight.
And draw they did! And then she would display the impromptu art in the plane for the other passengers to enjoy. She’s working on an exhibit of the drawings for the Los Angeles International Airport.
What I most loved reading about was how making art allowed everyone to relax and brought the passengers together. Art triumphs over the inconveniences and indignities of modern travel.
Here’s a link to the L.A. Times story.
