Journalism Club interview with Johnny Botts

Can you read French? The Ashbury Journalism Club from the French School of San Francisco made a field trip to my studio and interviewed me and wrote an article for a world-wide French School journalism contest.

The average age of the students was 9 years old. They were very excited--photographing everything and asking questions which they had prepared ahead of time. They asked how I started painting, and wanted to see pieces currently in work. As they finished the tour, one of the kids proclaimed the field trip the "best day of their life!"

Once their article was written, the students surprised me by coming to an art opening, and told me their report had won second prize for their school! Here's their article (in French), and I did my best with Google translate to create an English version. Enjoy!
