"I couldn't believe my son came home talking about James Castle!  A lot of the original art in my home is from self-taught artists.  I appreciate you recognizing this group of important, dedicated artists along side of the other major artists you discuss.

Thanks so much for making such a wonderful art experience for my boys!"
