Book Description: GROWING UP IN Russia in the late 1800s, Marc Chagall doesnâ€™t know what art is. He doesnâ€™t even know what drawing is until one of his schoolmates shows him how to trace a picture in a magazine. Marc tries it himself, then decides to pull pictures out of his own mindâ€”his Uncle Noah on the roof, flying cows, and happy men with fiddles. Suddenly Marc knows what he wants to do with his life. He wants to be an artist!
