Reading magazines has been a passion of mine since childhood. My favorite magazines are old and recent. I love to flip through them, seeking inspiration. Some issues I’ve kept for years and have revisited time and time again. It was my idea to make a digital magazine specifically for educators.

Anyone who loves to make art with kids, parents included. It is my hope you’ll enjoy this magazine as much as I enjoyed putting it together. There are many art tips and projects inside. I also have fun and helpful information that you can use in your art classes or with children.
