Art that Pops

In 2005 I ran into a friend from graduate school on the streets of SOHO in NYC. She worked at Scholastic at the time and we exchanged contact info. A few days later she contacted me and asked if I would create a kid’s creativity book for the Scholastic School Book Fair program. The requirements were few, mostly I just needed to create a book filled with imaginative tutorials including step by step images. I created this book and it was published in the Spring of 2006. It sold at school book fairs for a few years until it was retired.

 

 

Because this text is no longer available to purchase through Scholastic I have scanned it and am sharing it as a downloadable PDF. In a time of Covid-19 sheltering in place we need ideas to use our imagination. These are fun projects for kids and adults. Enjoy!

Starfish Place

The needs are so great. We help with those most urgent first.

The women and their children at the Starfish Place, a housing community in Phoenix for human trafficking survivors, will run out of food next week.

That means 15 women and children, families, will not have food next week.

Everyone take care out there
