Touch, the dog

Retired U.S. Senator Bill Frist of Tennessee, who served as Majority Leader during his time in the Senate, and his wife, Tracy, present an interactive art project called “Touch, the Dog” to second grade students at Christ the King School in Nashville on Tuesday, Feb. 25. The project asks the children trace their own hands, cut out the tracings, write words that describe emotions on the cutouts, and then select a color that they think goes with that emotion. They then placed their hand prints on a white ceramic sculpture of a dog that is changed and enhanced by all of the touches coming together. After placing their hand prints on the sculpture of the dog, “Touch,” they were encouraged to whisper something about their word to Touch.
