THE CATHOLIC TIMES, FRIDAY, APRIL 17, 1953
Twelve-year-old Michael Sells
once dreamed that he was an art
ist of world renown and many
who know him and the work he has
been doing, think there’s a good
chance he can believe in that dream.
Mike has been drawing since he
was eight years old. He didn’t take
it too seriously. To him, it was just
a lot of fun something to
amuse bis friends. He liked to
draw pictures of his friends, his
father, and cartoons. But best of
all, Mike liked to draw pictures with
a religious theme. He drew from
models most of the time, using old
Christmas cards, magazines or pic
tures. Occasionally, he would let
his imagination take over and do
some creative work.
He never received much encour
agement to study art seriously so
that he could follow it as a careeer.
He never received encouragement
until this year when he walked in
to the fifth grade class room at
Sacred Heart school. Columbus.
There, Sister Mary Terese, O.
S.F. who liked art and tried to teach
the children to draw, noticed
Mike’s ability. “Noticed” is hardly
the word. She was slightly amazed
at the work the 12-year-old was
dcing. She began to work hard with
the boy, pointing out his errors,
making suggestions but nevei
forcing her opinions on him. The
child’s natural abilities and cre
ative instincts were never over
Mike was quick to learn and fol
lowed the suggestions made by Sr.
Terese. He was eager for knowl
edge and he showed signs of devel
oping his ability a marked degree

Talented 12-Year-Old Artist At Sacred Heart Shows Promise
The fact that 12-year-old Michael Sells likes to draw better than anything else was proven when
CATHOLIC TIMES news editor Don Smith interviewed him. During the course of their conversation,
Mike sketched Don's picture. The result is shown above. Considering the subject matter, the youngster
did a remarkable job. The smaller pictures are reproductions of some more of the young artist's work.

Not many people know about
young Michael Sells the artist now
Buf we have a hunch that a lot of
people will be hearing about him
some day in the future when the
12-year-old’s dream comes true.
Sister Terese has hopes that some
one will become interested in the
boy and give him the financial as
well as moral support he needs
to make his dream a reality.

Catholic parents regard very ser
iously their responsibility concern
ing their children’s sex in
struction and education: how
ever they are often confused
or ignorant of how to proceed with
this important aspect—unsure of
the Church’s attitude.
For these parents, this book
will be an invaluable help. Not
only does the author give excel
lent suggestions and comments,
but also, at. the end of each chap
ter are discussion questions and
problems, intended for groups of
parents. Fully explanatory and
clearly written, this small volume
is indispensible for Catholic par
ents with growing children.
