Saturday Stories: Live Zoom Webinar Workshop with Matthew Cordell

December 12, 2020 @ 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 Caldecott Medalist picture book illustrator and author, Matthew Cordell, as he reads from his newest picture book, Hello, Neighbor! The Kind and Caring World of Mister Rogers. Following the story time, Matthew will lead an art workshop to demonstrate how he creates the pictures in his books–with old fashioned pen and ink dip pens and watercolor paint.

This program is free during the Society of Illustrators Original Art Exhibition: Showcasing the Fine Art of Children’s Picture Book Illustration. Thank you to The Bruce J.Heim Foundation for supporting The Original Art. 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. Free with registration.

Matthew Cordell is the author and illustrator of many celebrated picture books, including Hello, Neighbor!: The Kind and Caring World of Mister Rogers, and Wolf in the Snow, recipient of the 2018 Caldecott Medal. As an illustrator he has collaborated with many more authors including Gail Carson Levine, Philip C. Stead, and Rebecca Kai Dotlich. Matthew lives with his wife, author Julie Halpern, and their two children in suburban Chicago. For more about Matthew go here.
