2016 SB&H Thank Goodness It's Friday 
Lottery Calendar


For the past several years, the calendar has been filled with beautiful and creative artwork by children and youth whose lives are affected by Spina Bifida and/or Hydrocephalus.

This year, we thought you might like to meet the artists featured in the 2016 calendar and learn a little about them.

Every month, we will feature a new artist. So, keep checking in to read about someone new. 

Meet our July artist, Grace Miller:

1. How did you come up with the idea for this drawing/painting?

One of my teachers was showing us different ways to draw animals in art class. I thought it was pretty cool and kept practicing at home. I love dogs and summer time and thought it would be neat to draw it together.

2. Why do you like drawing/painting?

I like drawing because it’s fun and I like to see what I end up with when it’s finished.

3. How did you feel when you heard your drawing/painting was selected for the TGIF Calendar?

I felt excited. I have not had any of my art in a book or calendar before. 

4. What are your hobbies and interests?

My hobbies are art and sports. 

5. What would you like to be when you grow up?

I would like to be a clothing designer or a hair stylist and makeup artist.
