Virtual Saturday Stories: Monthly illustrator-led workshops for children & families: Featured Artist Dan Santat

January 16 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

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. 

Join picture book illustrator Dan Santat as he reads from his picture book, After the Fall. Following the story time, Dan will lead an art workshop to demonstrate how he creates the pictures in his books.

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.
