"Asian Art Museum in San Francisco has great backpacks to loan young visitors so they can get creative during their visit to the museum. Really love the collaborative notebook that gets new artwork from each visitor... who can be inspired by what other kids have done. Kudos."

Art inspiring kids. Kids inspiring kids. #AsiaForAll
