Bath Elementary students learn to open up their creative side.

Author and illustrator Troy Cummings shared his creative skills with students at Bath Elementary. Cummings, who found his passion for creating books as a young child, aims to show students that something as enjoyable as drawing can become a career. His goal is for students to not only get excited about reading but also about exploring writing and creating pictures.

"The other thing I want to get out of it is getting ideas from them. They have all of this energy and all of this creativity. And they are so funny and I kind of think in a straight line and they do not. They think all over the place, so it's a little bit training for me to get these not ideas from them but ways to think from them and I can go back and it makes me a better writer," said Troy Cummings.

Cummings has found that he enjoys his job more when the kids are involved in his presentation. He also adds that interacting with the students about once a month is his favorite part of his job. He will be visiting local schools for four days this week, sharing his creativity with hundreds of students.
