Free Art Friday: Grafitti Art!

Art is not a thing,
it is a way.
~ Elbert Hubbard

Tomorrow evening I'm part of an interactive arts event for teens in Dallas to help combat childhood obesity.  I'm probably not cool enough for the hip hop clublike scene but I'll do my best.  I'll be teaching the kids how to make grafitti books like this. 

This one has lots of cool quotes about art inside and I thought it would make a perfect giveaway for this week!  To enter the drawing, please answer the following question:

What is your favorite artistic medium and why are you drawn to it?

I'll draw a winner next Friday so come on back!

Now for this week's drawing for a little candle plate!

The winner is Elisa, comment #12.

Elisa, please send me your snailmail address to so I can get this off to you! :)

And I just want to say a very special thank you to all of you for sharing such wonderful stories.  If you didn't get a chance to read through them, you can
