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.
Virtually meet acclaimed author illustrator Scott Magoon in his studio! He’ll read and talk about his latest book LINUS THE LITTLE YELLOW PENCIL, a story about creativity, self-criticism and patience. Then he’ll lead a couple of LINUS-inspired drawing workshops: drawing with yellow shapes, reductive drawings (drawing with pencil AND eraser), and a brief digital drawing demonstration on an iPad using Procreate software.
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.
