When I was in grade two, our teacher used to post our best pictures on the wall. My pink and blue snowman made the cut, and, if memory serves, that was the last of my art posted that year.
Thinking I had the formula, I made pink and blue snowmen summer and winter, but to no avail. Perhaps that was the year I discovered I couldn’t do art.
And perhaps a similar discovery (which can be made despite the best efforts of teachers) explains nine-year-old Marie.
While creating our very first entry for the Stories by Children website page, Marie was right into the storytelling–composing, pondering and editing, as all good storytellers do.
However, when she was faced with the prospect of creating a picture for her Zero to Hero dino story, the project almost collapsed. Almost, that is, until Marie and her scribe Googled “draw T-Rex step by step.”
So here we have the amended version of the call, now extended to writers and illustrators.
