Nothing brightens my day quite like seeing Christian Robinson’s work. Whether it is one of his picture books or a post from his Instagram account. His energy and optimism shine through his colorful scenes. His stories celebrate diverse characters and help children explore different perspectives -whether a school building’s first day of school, the life of a great jazz singer, or a ghost befriending a human girl.
A constant source of inspiration, one of his Instagram posts helped me create an art-focused station for my tech-heavy summer program, Star Party. Gotta embrace that A in STEAM!
