About the Author

Jan Clifton Watford's interest in art began as a very young child. Through childhood she studied privately with several art teachers and was recognized with several art awards. Education includes Florida State University, Georgia Perimeter College, and a Bachelors of Visual Art from Georgia State University. Graduate work includes a masters degree in teaching and learning with specialization in integrating technology in the classroom from Nova Southeast University. For many years she taught art from her home and then from her own retail store that also included wholesale and retail sales, and arts and crafts. Her original designs for the gift market industry have sold nationally and internationally. She taught public school for eleven years with the last eight years in elementary art to inner-city children. In her retirement, she is enjoying pursuing her interest by furthering her involvement in fine art painting in water color, acrylics, and collage. Recently an additional interest in writing and illustrating books for young children has also been realized by the addition of several new books. Her first picture book, Drabsville, was be published in the summer of 2012 and a historical fiction chapter book for young readers, Roland's Stupendous Imagination And The Native Americans. In 2012 she also was awarded with the honor of becoming a lifetime member of Who's Who Worldwide.

I gave this book to my granddaughter and she loved reading it. She attends a magnet arts' school and the book was a perfect fit. I liked the way the author inserted a lesson on primary and secondary colors.
