Artistic Thoughts

I'm reading "Artist to Artist" in order to teach my children (another) unit study on good books. The artwork alone makes me long to OWN this book, not just borrow it from our wonderful librarians... Each of the 23 illustrators tells how they began with art in childhood. My favorite quote so far is from Mitsumasa Anno: "(Nothing is) really as good as a meal made 'from scratch,' or a picture created with your own hands."
