Dear Art Teacher

Watercolors Upstairs

Dear Art Teacher,

You welcomed kids into the room upstairs of your old home where your daughters used to sleep to teach us watercolors and how to draw. Your husband made us popcorn that we doused with some cheesy salty seasoning that I'd never heard of before or seen since. I remember warmth there.

Dear Art Teacher,

My first memory of you is of you sitting behind your desk as a line of children queued for a moment with you to present our project. Most children were given a few seconds before being turned away and sent back to their seat to try again.
