Elisabeth Craster, Graphic Design Associate's Degree at Delaware College of Art and Design
I am pursuing education in the visual arts, specifically in Illustration, because of a desire to inspire children. I believe that pictures that capture a child's imagination can incite creative processes at an early age, and encourage young readers to create stories and pictures of their own.
