People who lived millions of years ago drew images on the walls of caves. Some sculpted fine jewelry and plates. They felt a need to express themselves. Humans today still have this same need.

Girls Explore® introduces you to some of these explorers in the arts. You'll meet J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter books along with Mary Cassatt and Georgia O'Keefe, who are both renowned artists.
