Happy New Year from Joyousbrush Club

Dear Creative friends

Happy New Year from Joyousbrush Club.  

Charlotte Mason, 1842-1923, founder of the Charlotte Mason College of Education in England,  stated "There are few joys in life greater and more constant than our joy in Beauty.  It is only through our Aesthetic Sense that we can take full pleasure in what we see and hear,  to an extend that our soul over flow the joy and expression which often produce new forms of beauty in all application of life".  

Joyousbrush Club seeks to awake your students' Aesthetic sense, so that they may be delightfully engaged  in beauty in all circumstances and application of life.  We all need to be trained to see and to have our eyes opened before we can take in the joy that is meant for us in this beautiful world.  Joyousbrush Club seeks to teach each student in their own brush strokes how to document this art of seeing. 

Charlotte Mason continues "It is our business to bring Beauty to places where it is not.  For happiness comes of effort, service, wide interests and of enjoyment.  We do not want to miss the happiness to which the Beauty Sense was meant to minister, the joy of life to all without exclusivity.
