Richmond kids-turned-authors to exhibit their works at public reception


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.

  1. Nice! I hope to see this program come to the inner city schools of Richmond in the near future. The different perspectives of the children will be interesting to take in as we can get a glimpse of their minds through the stories they compose.
