Virtual Saturday Stories: Monthly illustrator-led workshops for children & families: Featured Artist Fiona Woodcock

November 20, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Presented monthly, Saturday Stories invites guest illustrators to lead children and their adult companions in a read-aloud Zoom workshop related to the wide range of materials and processes that illustrators use to create their picture books.

Join Fiona live from her London studio for an insight into her picture book process and learn how she developed the illustrations for Sunny-Side Up (written by Jacky Davis). From its early development to capturing emotions with line and telling a story with texture and color. As well as hearing a reading of Sunny-Side Up, you’ll be guided on a workshop inspired by the artwork from the book, exploring character drawing, textured color and pattern.

Materials needed – A drawing pencil, paper, glue stick, and scissors. And any of your favorite art kit from colored pencils, crayons or chalks etc.

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.
