Presented monthly, Saturday Stories invites guest illustrators to lead children and their adult companions in a read-aloud and hands-on workshop related to the wide range of materials and processes that illustrators use to create their picture books.
Greg Pizzoli has made almost forty picture books as well as three graphic novels starring Baloney A. Pig and his friends Peanut, Bizz, and Krabbit. In this workshop, Greg will discuss how making graphic novels differs from making picture books, and walk us through his process for both. Greg will demonstrate how to make a simple folded book using just one sheet of paper, and help participants to create their own comics starring Baloney and friends! Supplies needed: several blank pieces of paper, a pencil with eraser, anything else you like to draw with, a pair of scissors, and a sense of humor.
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.
