Adoria Maxberry discusses life journey with first graders

Adoria Maxberry visited teacher Aimee Burton’s first grade class in late February to share the story of her journey to becoming a renowned Cincinnati artist and entrepreneur. Maxberry created Most OutGROWing, an organization whose mission is to help others grow through art, after she was inspired by hosting her daughter’s sixth birthday party. “I loved teaching, and I couldn’t outrun the call because I loved nothing else more than the joy of teaching others,” Maxberry said. In addition to sharing her story, Maxberry also taught the first graders how to design a woven fabric pattern modeled after the story telling found on traditional African Kente cloth using paper and markers.
