Patrice Barton illustrated MINE! (written by me), for Knopf in 2011. She was honored by winning a Crystal Kite award for her work. This award is given by the voting members of SCBWI (Soc. of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators). YAY, Patrice!!!
I just heard the BBC news about some of the artwork in the caves of southern France. It appears that four individual children, one as young as two, made the cave art. And since the children’s art is primarily confined to one of the cave regions . . . it appears it was a kind of art school. How cool is that?
Not only that, one of the repeated drawings kind of looks like a hut. As kids today draw houses, perhaps these children were also drawing pictures of where they lived. So wonderful!!
