Diane Pamela (D. P.) Smith
Hello, I'm D.P. (Diane Pamela) Smith and I am excited to be
teaching Art Appreciation again this semester.
"Open my eyes that I may see,
Glimpses of truth Thou hast for me....
Open my eyes, illumine me, Spirit Divine."
--1895 Clara H. Scott.
The hymn writer invites us to open our eyes, and may we see the world around us.
May we not only look, but see.
May we not only hear, but learn.
May we not only observe, but appreciate,
May we gain discernment and understanding
through knowledge and illumination by the Holy Spirit of the Most High God.
It is a lifelong adventure! Welcome Aboard!
