Art is a universal language. Children from Ecuador to India to the United States can be artists by painting pictures, making music, acting in plays, or singing songs. The arts engage children and encourage their creative spirit as nothing else can. With lyrical text and exquisite photographs, To Be an Artist celebrates the many ways children around the world express themselves.
