I just had the most wonderful experience… Artist/author/teacher Ann Sayre Wiseman came to my house on Monday with her son Kiko Denzer, also an artist. Her phenomenal book, Making Things: The Handbook for Creative Discovery, is one of my all time favorites. You might recall I mentioned her in my interview with Bloesem Kids last year when I talked about wanting to write a craft/art/toy book, too. And, more recently, I used her paper ornament idea to make the standing paper flowers. My sister Lori is a huge fan, too, so she came over as well. We had an amazing time discussing kids’ art and education. Ann is strongly dedicated to nurturing creativity in children, and I learned so much in a very short time! I hope we can visit again next time you’re in the Northwest, Ann! Thanks a million!
