Paying it back by paying it forward

By Steve Shreve

Art and literature are two things I feel passionate about – so much so that I have worked in these fields my entire adult life. And throughout my life, I have received instruction, advice, and attention from mentors, teachers, and peers that helped guide me. For this I will ever be grateful.

This year I was fortunate to be able to pass on some of what I’ve learned to kids through arts and literature programs throughout Prince William and Fauquier counties in Virginia. I’ve had the opportunity to talk to elementary and middle school kids on the topics of reading, writing, and art as well as discussing graphic design as a career to high school students and Eagle Scouts.
