GROWING UP IN Russia in the late 1800s, Marc Chagall doesnt know what art is. He doesnt 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 mind—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!
