May is a quiet time here in the studio. I've finished projects for clients and now I'm preparing for the library visits that are coming up in June. So, May is kind of a momentary pause from the winter and early spring and the travel rush of June and July.
This year, I'm speaking at the Whole Schools Initiative Summer Institute again, like I did last summer, but on a more expansive level. It's a major teaching artist commitment and I'm looking forward to it!
Mary Kitchens, President of the Mississippi's Toughest Kids Foundation (MTK) can get anything done! After many years of planning and fund raising, the ground breaking ceremony for the fully accessible Camp Kamassa was held this morning.
The building of the camp will take about three years. I include this topic in my blog because MTK is a client. I helped art direct Mary's picture book Bear's Special Christmas Tree, a fund raiser project in 2017 for the camp. I wrote about the creation and publication of the book in last December's blog. Congratulations to Mary and the MTK Foundation on this very important occasion! Check out MTK's website, www.mtkfound.com for more informaton.
