|I showed some inspirational artwork created by the artist Miro. Below are the awesome monsters the kids created. What great little artists!|
Karen Ritter, the librarian at Charles Burke, invited me to present my newest book The Little “Read” Hen written by Dianne de Las Casas. I gave a presentation about what it takes to become an illustrator and the process that an illustrator goes through to create a picture book. After the presentation, each student created their own collage of a hen. I found it very fitting the hen be created from newspaper, because in the story she is well “Read.” 🙂
I had a wonderful time. Thank you for inviting me to your school to talk about what I love – creating illustrations and sharing with kids my process.
