Andrea Ream Ellwood has carried the idea for Make and Take Masterpieces around with her for almost half a decade now. If you ask her, she will tell you that ART and making art are the single most important things in the world that anyone could ever do with their time or energy. She herself devotes as much time as she can immersed in the visual arts in her endeavors as a professional photographer, high school art education teacher, and working fine artist. This creative endeavor is a manifestation of her mission and divine calling in life: To make ART something the everyday person can know, enjoy and LOVE.
