The Scribbler Artist Project, a clever program at Mira Vista Elementary School that we wrote about just after it launched earlier this year, has produced a whole lot of budding young authors.
The project, a brainchild of artist, illustrator and San Pablo native Tatiana Ortiz, used a $3,500 city arts grant to teach students how to write and illustrate their own books.
After months of hard work, the newest young authors have will celebrate their works with a public reception on Thursday, June 23, at BridgeMaker Arts, 23 Maine Ave., in Richmond.
At the reception, which starts at 6:30 p.m., the community will have a chance to meet the authors and preview their works, which are slated to be published through publishing company Lulu Jr.
See the flier below for more info.
