In two weeks I will be in Charlotte, N.C., taking part in the National Reach Out & Read Literacy Summit! We’ll be talking about children, and the importance of nature, art and creativity. I am looking forward to lots of interesting conversations!
This month I will be spending time in Georgia. I am honored to be offered a residency fellowship at AIR Serenbe, 30 minutes outside of Atlanta. This Focus Fellowship is generously funded by the Institute for Child Success and Reach Our and Read Carolinas. I will be staying in my own little place in Chattahoochee Hills, working, and at times, sharing with the community there.
My daughter, Carly, drove down with me, which was an adventure in and of itself. She flew home and I spent the next couple of days wandering Atlanta and drawing. This is a painting from yesterday’s wanderings.
My next month of posts will be dedicated to my adventure here. I am scanner-less and wacom-less, so these images will be photos from my phone.
Thank you to Judy Newman at Scholastic and Emma Dryden, editor extraordinaire, for recommending me, and Air Serenbe for hosting me!
