A collaboration between artwork and text, this whimsical book has a different inspirational idea on each page, with a scene that each “artist” imagines. The concept is based on Doretta Groenendyk’s experience working with children in schools and trying to inspire them to be creative in all forms of art. An ideal resource for elementary teachers, the book’s characters span cultures, genders and ages.

I’m Drawing a Picture joyfully explores many different kinds of visual art. With simple, accessible prose and sweet, funny, vibrant illustrations, Doretta Groenendyk encourages everyone to try their hand at making art.
