    Awesome kid artist Google Doodled and WON. Look at his winning piece. Just frigg’in awesome.
    Note: To those of you who pick at my intricate Drawsome art… This is
    what ART is all about, THINKING and BEING creative. Sure I can draw a
    green line representing a snake, but it is not a snake to you until you give ti fangs and a tongue.

     It’s definitely a very creative doodle, and Dylan is clearly a very talented budding artist. For a 7 year-old his artwork is very advanced. He obviously has a bright future ahead of him. It’s also a great boon for his school to receive that $50k award to create or expand a computer lab. Too few schools in America have them, and those that do rarely have the latest technology like the computer labs in schools in Europe and even China. Tablets and other mobile devices are the future, so it will help the Prairie School to teach their students how to use and utilize them, and perhaps even learn some programming. This is what school should be about – giving children opportunities to explore their talents, but that requires the proper tools. That being said, I must disagree with your rather strongly worded view on art. Art isn’t merely pretty pictures or fancy photographs; art is a form of human expression. Taking your thoughts, feelings, ideas, and forming them into something tangible whether abstract or straightforward is the definition of art. To use your example, if someone drew a green line and called it a snake then it is a snake. The person who created it has the sole right to define it, not those who view it because art is a form of emotional and personal expression. Let’s use another form of expression as an example. What would you think if you were sad about something and began to cry and another person said to you “that’s not a legitimate reason to be sad – stop crying!”?  You would probably tell them in no uncertain terms that their opinion didn’t matter because your feelings are your own and it is not for another person to dictate or define what you feel or think or how you choose to legally express it. So my point comes down to this: art is a form of emotional expression and nobody has the right to denigrate or define another person’s expression.

     It is VERY creative with THOUGHT put into it.  The wings of the Owl and the treasure chest REALLY stick out as being the most difficult to do.
