From Kahlo to Kusama, Kerry James Marshall to Pablo Picasso…who are your favorite artists? Do you share a homeland with a famous artist? Is there an artist in your family or are YOU the creative one?

Create art that reflects your love of a particular artist, a style, or simply freestyle using the materials that you love; crayons, paper, markers or paint. Have fun and fly on the page!
