Welcome back to school, and welcome to Xpressions, our monthly showcase of creativity by young artists and writers. Summer's open theme continues this month with, among other artistic work and words, replicas of an unusual technique: bark painting, using collage and drawing. Check out the submission instructions and themes for coming Xpressions and be part of the fun.
