THE STORY:

When we're not creating you can find us volunteering with Big Class. Most recently we've started teaching an Origami + Haikus workshop for the Big Class Writer's Club. As two creative people, we enjoy sharing our passion for writing and the arts with the youth of New Orleans and joining the Big Class' Volunteer crew has been an amazing experience.

Since 2010, over 2000 of New Orleans young writers have participated in Big Class's free programs, publishing over 50 books ranging from illustrated story collections, to bilingual comic anthologies, to letters to America. They have also published poetry on pizza boxes, built houses of stories, made movies, taken photographs, and created paintings inspired by jazz and Basquiat.

As part of our efforts to help plant a seed for Big Class' youth writing center we are excited to host an adult "coloring book" party for all who graciously donate $10 or more to the fundraiser. Each book will be illustrated by Jeremy and will be yours to keep! For those who do not live in New Orleans we will mail you a coloring book so you can enjoy a nice relaxing evening (or afternoon and maybe with a glass of wine) coloring in or outside of the lines.

Thank you for all your love and support.
