THEME ARTIFY- ar-ti-fy (verb)
1. strengthen by learning basic art elements and design principles
2. open ourselves to new ways of seeing the world around us
3. encourage others and share ideas with a fresh new vision
Encourage, reassure, brace, embolden and reinforce are perfect words to keep in mind as we artify: boldly build our art muscles.

Frank Morrison (MONDAY)

Growing up in New Jersey, Frank Morrison began developing his own style through graffiti art scenes that brought him considerable street recognition and local acclaim. But it wasn’t until he visited the Louvre Museum in Paris with his dancing group, that he realized painting was his true creative path. His talent and hard work paid off with over 20 illustrated children’s books, including the Coretta Scott King/John Steptoe Award winner, Jazzy Miz Mozetta and the Coretta Scott King Illustrator Honor book, Little Melba and her Big Trombone and Let The Children March.
