School has moved online, learning is happening remotely, and we have LOTS of time to make art. In Episode 12 of Kidliterate we give an update on how distance learning is going, offer ideas for learning visual art through books and videos, and chat with 11-year-old guest Clara about her favorite YouTube channels for art inspiration. As always, we share what we’re reading AND what you’re reading. Join us!
