Franz reviews ways that art can come to life.  He sketches with colored pencils in a sketchbook and discusses how these sketches can become just about anything!  How about creating your own tee shirt, or a personalized scarf or handkerchief?  Even bakers and pastry chefs use a sketch to design cakes and other sweet treats.  What will your drawings become?
