Rick Chrustowski

Growing up, RICK CHRUSTOWSKI drew all the time. He drew on the floor of his room. He drew in front of the TV. He drew at the kitchen table. In second grade, his parent’s gave him a drawing table. He has drawn at it ever since. When Rick learned how to write stories in third grade, he realized that putting words and pictures together was his favorite art form.  Rick likes to explore new art materials. He has illustrated books using colored pencils, cut-paper collage, and watercolor paints. When Rick is not making books, he visits elementary schools across the country teaching kids how to write and illustrate their own books.
