One would think that a night with a clown would be one filled with jolly and laughter, but not on this...

WKMS Youth Reporter Kayla Eicholtz admires the artwork in his videos and was curious to find out more about his creative process, to learn that while some artwork may be strange and possibly even scary, the originality of the idea can be a determining factor in how interesting a piece of art is. She spoke with Firth over the phone, while he was on a trip through Europe seeking inspiration, in Switzerland at this particular moment.</p><p> Wed, 14 Aug 2013 17:30:00 +0000 Matt Markgraf & Kayla Eicholtz 33961 at http://wkms.org Youth Report: A Conversation With British Animator David Firth Kids Write Poetry & More at the Young Authors Camp http://wkms.org/post/kids-write-poetry-more-young-authors-camp <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Last week, several children from across the region, between the ages of 8 and 12, came to the campus of Murray State University for the annual Young Authors Camp.
