As the Crafterina storyline developed, it was important to create a character that all children could identify with. Our society has an immensive focus on beauty, and the way we look. The true beauty in the art of dance is not what one’s face looks like, but rather how the body is able to communicate through movement. All children have the ability to create beautiful art. As grown-ups, our responsibility is to encourage young minds so they have the courage to follow their dreams. We need more positive thinking, role models, and leaders creating our world. Crafterina is a character that inspires a love for the art of dance in all readers, and promotes a positive self-image!
