WHAT A GREAT DAY WE HAD! WE WELCOMED OVER 1,000 FAMILIES!
Author-Illustrator, Mike Ciccotello will introduce how to build drawings with tools, like a circle, square, and line. Then he will lead the children in two draw-along activities and create characters from one of his books using basic lines and shapes. Pads of paper and crayons for the audience will be supplied by Mike. Please visit YouTube.com/DrawWithMrMike for examples. !
Join us for demonstration of Amelia’s 3D technique using illustrations from her books, My Monsterpieceand Masha Munching. She’ll use original art to compare with the print in the book and demonstrate how she created the effect by cutting the figures out of paper and gluing them on the painted background to make them look as if they pop up of the page. Also demonstrated will be collage and painting of surfaces such as paper plated & supermarket bags, as used in my Monsterpiece. Afterwards, children will have the opportunity to color coloring pages from both books.
Jackie Azúa Kramer will conduct a bilingual read aloud (English/Spanish) of her picture book EL PARAGUAS VERDE/THE GREEN UMBRELLA.
Join Mindy as she reads her picture book In My Mosque, followed by a brief magic trick, Q&A, and special craft activity.
After reading her book Mermaid and Pirate members of the audience get to propose new creatures to "talk" to mermaid and pirate, and envision what their language would sound like. This is a fun, interactive, cumulative, community experience.
Come hear Robin read her book DON’T CALL ME FUZZYBUTT! In English and French. A real treat!
