Review: This Is What I Know About Art by Kimberly Drew

51794337. sx318 sy475


 I was fortunate to be financially stable during Quarantine so I brought a lot of books by Black Authors. This pocket guide by Kimberly Drew is heavy on brilliant stories and bookmark worthy content if not actual illustrations. 

This is a good choice because the focus becomes on Kimberly's experiences and her and the art that touched her.

This is important because I believe many Black people don't think art is for "them" . This is a wonderful primer to help everyone  but especially teens find the art space they can call home.
