QHS alumnus, thriving entrepreneur, and artist Joyce Marie Harris visited Mrs. Myrick’s art classes at Quitman Lower Elementary yesterday. The French Pastry School graduate asked the class, “Can you eat art?”
The students were adamant, “No. That’s nasty. Uh uh. No way.”
But then Harris explained how she had combined her love of art with her love of baking to create JM Cake Designs, an edible art company. The children were intrigued and excited to paint with and on the cookies she passed out to them.
Now they understand that not only can they eat edible art, but that they have the potential to create a business by doing the things they would be doing even if nobody was paying them.
It was tasty lesson for these kids.
