I wanted to share the comment thatÂ MaryAnn KohlÂ left after reading everyone's commentsÂ at the end ofÂ her interview.Â
"The warmth â" acceptance â" appreciation â" care â" of the comments following my interview have inspired me to continue on in my focus of art for children!!! Sometimes it seems like a battle that cannot be won, with government and administrators taking away art, music, drama, and even recess. Thank you, everyone, Jean especially, for the chance to spout my fire! But more, thank you for the comments that have made me feel so very very good today. Even my own daughter snuck one in there. Talk about âfeel-goodâ. I would love to do another interview sometime on âgreat artistsâ or âgreat illustratorsâ and how we can introduce kids to their amazing gifts. Thank you, everyone! I had no idea that this interview would bring peace and joy to meâ¦itâs nice."
