Sharing Our Creative Voices

 

Fireflies Aglow has been sharing creative adventures for 2 years now. It all began making a comic together.  We also made paintings to honor an officer of the Des Moines police department. After our summer adventures, we started working on individual projects. Zoe wrote and published two books, and now the sky is the limit. It's time to start exploring animation, design and write more books.  Sign up below to follow our creative adventures.


WE'RE WRITING A BOOK!

Emma started painting when she was five.  Multiple suns, barnyard scenes, and dogs filled her pages, and her creative writing has always been about animals.  Emma is in show choir, developing her voice and learning to dance.  An avid reader, she is also writing a story about a wolf.

 

Aeva has always had a strong abstract sense.  She loves color and pattern, and also really loves pottery.  She has talked about doing a line of fashion and having her designs on all kinds of products. Aeva likes to write stories about the adventures she has with her sisters and friends, and draw all things cute.
