When I attended the (amazing!) Edible Schoolyard Academy at Martin Luther King Middle School in Berkeley, I learned that their program highly valued hand illustration. For example, their staff embellishes all of their recipes with simple drawings. We even had a lesson on how to do this ourselves! Their garden is full of hand lettering and whimsical drawings. This year we are so lucky that our FoodCorps service member comes to us with these skills in spades.
