Kazan's Sketch 22

Card by Kazan's Daughter Ashton (age: 4 1/2)

This week we are joining forces with our Sponsor, Sakura of America to celebrate Youth Art Month. March is known Nationally for Youth Art Month and is celebrated throughout the country at Art Museums, Educational Institutions and throughout the Art Media industry. We asked our Design Team to have their children create a card with them this week to celebrate Youth Art Month. Not only did our Design Team do a fantastic job on the sketch but I am sure you will all agree that the children's work outshine the rest!
