RICHMOND, Va. - In the words of award-winning illustrator and children’s author Vanessa Brantley Newton, collage, like many art forms, "only has to be beautiful and make sense to its creator." Vanessa invited our guest co-host, Andrias White Murdaugh, into her art studio to show us how to create a collage self portrait. Whether you choose to do this activity yourself or make it group activity with your children, you’ll find it exciting and expressive.

Vanessa Brantley Newton is the illustrator of more than 87 books and the author and illustrator of five books. To learn more about her work, listen to her “sing reads,” and explore the art of collage, visit her website.
