Youth artist draws on experience


TEMPERANCE - With a few strokes of Cyd Moore's pen, an alligator in a chef's toque, or hat, appeared as Ms. Moore talked about her life and work.

Speaking to hundreds of schoolchildren at Smith Road Elementary School last week, the Georgia native drew from her experiences growing up on a farm to show how her childhood shaped the artist she has become. In three lectures, she gave presentations to the school's 430 students in a program funded by the school's PTA's enrichment committee.

The cost for the day was $1,000, money PTA president Amy Schott believes was well spent.
