I am BEYOND excited about the incredible paintings done by Kehinde Wiley and Amy Sherald. Anyone who knows me would know that Wiley has been one of my top 10 artists for years, he is absolutely incredible! The artwork of Amy Sherald is pretty new on my radar, I just discovered her art about a year ago but love it! Her work is dynamic yet has a gentle simplicity to it.
What a joy to present my 5th grade students (who recently did portraits) to the paintings of Barack and Michelle Obama!
