February — it’s the shortest month of the year, but there’s definitely no shortage of exciting things happening in the Towson area. When thinking of ideas for our Arts + Makers issue, we were inspired by the talented local creatives who enrich our community with their work. Whether it’s local theater performances and art exhibits, the next generation of creators found at the George Washington Carver Center for Arts and Technology or the power of art to help individuals communicate and connect at Make Studio, art is amazing. We are inspired by the creative culture our community. 

This month we also take a look at the many ways to inspire your kids this summer. Whether your children are looking for enrichment, unusual summer adventures, or basic summer fun, we have a round-up of some unique summer camps to keep their minds growing.

In addition to being my birthday month, February is also time to celebrate with your valentine. This year we’re highlighting some unique experiences to share with your love.

We all have creativity within us. Consider this issue your launch pad for creating or consuming art in the coming months.

With love,

Kristen
