When an artist has a picture in his mind, he uses his paint brush to somehow portray that image, that idea, to his audience. His tools are his colors, his chisel, his brush. Because he knows how to handle these tools, he can mix two colors to create a third; he can hammer that chisel with certain force at a certain angle to depict depth in a carving; and he can twist his brush with such a flair that the brush stroke adds information to the big picture.
YOU are the artist.
YOU have a picture in your mind, an idea moving around: a plan, a thought, an analysis.

Third grade sentence:
**Dogs are good..
Twist the brush:
**Loving their owners without question, dogs, those beautiful furry creatures, provide comfort and companionship.
Today you began to learn FIVE ways to twist your words, five BRUSH STROKES. Look them up!
Have a great day!
