AHA! | Youth Culture

Last Updated by WMHT Web Editor on

This episode focuses on the connection between art, illustration, and youth.

When graphic novelist Ira Marcks isn’t busy illustrating his own books, he’s teaching youth storytelling through illustration. Also, we reveal the secret identity of the man who drew Captain America. Artist Robert Silvers takes indvidual pieces of art and puts them together to create one image. For this project, Silvers partnered up with an airport and local school system to create ten mosaics for travelers. And lastly, a group of teachers take arts education into their own hands.
