Virtual Saturday Stories: Monthly illustrator-led workshops for children & families: Featured Artist Gordon C. James
March 19 @ 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.
Meet acclaimed, multi- award winning illustrator Gordon C. James for a virtual behind the scenes look at his stunning illustrations. Gordon will read from two of his inspiring picture books, I AM EVERY GOOD THING and LET ‘ER BUCK!. After sharing how he creates his illustrations he will teach a live workshop where participants will illustrate some simple phrases provided. Materials needed are a few pieces of blank paper, a pencil or marker to draw and coloring pencils, markers or crayons to add color.
For all ages 5 and up.
