Illustrator Steve Gray, will host an inter-active session showing kids how children’s picture books are illustrated. Steve will explain how he starts with rough pencil sketches and ends with a slick full-color picture book. Some of the books illustrated by Steve Gray include: Jennifer Ward’s book’s There Was A Coyote Who Swallowed a Flea, and There Was An Old Monkey Who Swallowed a Frog, and Katy Duffield’s book Farmer McPeepers and His Missing Milk Cows. Steve will also show off two new books: There was an Old Pirate Who Swallowed a Fish, by Jennifer Ward; and Cow Can't Sleep by Ken Baker. After Steve talks about the process of illustrating a book, he will give the children a hands-on, follow-along, drawing lesson.
The program is best suited for children ages 5-12.
