SCHOOL VISITS: K - 5
I demonstrate my creative process from inspiration to final book. Each program is tailored to specific grade levels. I show children how story ideas come from their lives and imaginations with clear examples from my books. I show them how to develop those ideas, reinforcing much of what they are learning in their classroom. I also sketch in each program, showing basic drawing techniques that make drawing more approachable. Students leave my program inspired to write and draw.


Year(s) of participation: 2017
