Children's book author and illustrator, Adjoa Burrowes reads the picture book Destiny's Gift to students at Seaton Elementary school in Washington D.C. during Literacy Night. Destiny's Gift is a contemporary story about a young African American girl and her love for books. When her favorite neighborhood bookstore is threatened to go out of business, Destiny, along with her family and community, devise creative ways to save it. During Literacy Night, Burrowes, along with Seaton art teacher Terry Thomas and Corcoran student teacher, Indigo lead students in a step-by-step hands-on art workshop in which they created portraits using cut papers.
I see myself as a visual storyteller. My narrative mixed media art explores the interaction of words, symbols, and imagery in my art making. My craving for the tactile keeps me bound in traditional printmaking and painting— however, my interest in new technologies has pushed me to explore digital processes and the marriage of the two.
