Virtual Saturday Stories: Monthly illustrator-led workshops for children & families: Featured Artist Laura Vaccaro Seeger

September 18, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Award winning author and illustrator, Laura Vaccaro Seeger will present how she creates her beautiful picture books, followed by a reading and workshop based on her latest book Red the companion to her Caldecott Honor Book Green and highly acclaimed Blue. Color cleverly evokes emotion with ingenious die-cuts that propel the eye from page to page, making for a powerful conclusion to a rich and satisfying trilogy. Participants will be guided through the process of creating a two-line poem about their chosen color. Then two art spreads will be planned, sketched, and created using the concept of interconnectivity through theme.

SUPPLIES NEEDED- Crayons, colored pencils, or collage materials; scissors; glue sticks; heavy construction paper

Good for all ages 5 and up.

This program is free to attend. Thank you to The Bruce J.Heim Foundation for supporting this event. Their generous gift and belief that books play a vital role in the development of a child’s imagination and dreams greatly aids our educational programming for K-12 students.
