Author Speaks At Rugg Elementary

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5)--Students at Rugg Elementary in Alexandria got a visit from an author and illustrator of children's books Thursday.

Mike Artell of Covington has authored more than 35 children's books. He is also an illustrator and cartoonist. Yesterday he took those skills to the classroom to help teach students how to draw. Artell says kids naturally love to draw but sometimes they just need a little help to get started.

"What I want them to understand is that if you break it down and kind of analyze it you can draw almost anything if you break it down step by step, and so to take that initial step to have the courage, the creative confidence as I call it to take that first step," he said.

Artell is currently working on a couple of other books that will be released at a later date.
