"The Alchemy of Art: Stories for the Classroom" New Book Released!

Buy Now on Amazon

It's official friends!  
The new book "The Alchemy of Art: Stories for the Classroom" is available for purchase.

I started this book when I was teaching art classes for the Indianapolis Art Center Outreach "ArtReach" Program.  I was looking for material to read-aloud to the children while they were creating their art projects.   Finding folktales and biographies about artists from around the world, I  formed this book of short stories for art teachers to share in the classroom.  

I am so pleased that it is finished and ready to share with you!  If you enjoy it please write an Amazon review and share with fellow art lovers.

"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."
-Audrey Hepburn

Happy Birthday to me!
