Created to Be Creators

This talk teaches parents the importance of integrating art into their curriculum and gives parents ideas and resources for teaching art at home.

The ability to visualize, draw and create can have great impact in other fields. She challenges parents that since we are all creators, our job as parents is to teach our children to use their creative ability for God's glory.
