I had the joy and honor of writing a cover story for LEO Weekly about LaNia Roberts, an amazing young artist. I was also thrilled to highlight the Louisville Visual Art Association’s CFAC program, which has played a huge role in LaNia’s art journey, as well as in the journeys of thousands of other young artists (myself included): http://www.leoweekly.com/ae/finding-third-eye-and-mouthpiece
Do you know of any middle school aged kids in the Louisville area who like to draw comics and want to have the time, instruction, materials, and resources needed in order to bring their vision to life by creating their own comic book? If so, send them my way for an art camp I’m teaching through the LVAA!
June 17– 22 Middle 6 – 8 grade

The comic art above was created by a former student of mine (7th grader)
I am happy to have a piece in this sale on April 13, 2013 at PUBLIC that will help provide funding for the Children’s Fine Art Classes at LVAA and UofL art scholarships! I currently teach a CFAC middle school class, and I was a CFAC student when I was younger.
