SATURDAY PICTURE BOOK SPOTLIGHT featuring author and illustrator Fiona Woodcock
November 11 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm$10.00 – $35.00
The Society of Illustrators welcomes award winning author and illustrator Fiona Woodcock from London, England. Fiona will be featuring her latest picture book Silver Linings, a funny story about friendship, overcoming anxiety and staying positive. Pip and Parker are best friends who do everything together. When Pip makes a mistake, Parker is always there to see the bright side. But what happens when Parker needs a little encouragement, too? Find out when Fiona reads her book and shares how she writes and creates art for her picture books. During the workshop participants will learn about character and story ideas and themes and create their own artwork inspired by the book. Fiona will show texture techniques, character and emotion whilst playing with rubber stamps. Visit her at fionawoodcock.com and instagram.com/fionawoodcock

$35 includes admission and workshop (including signed book and art supplies) for 1 adult + 1 child. One book per family. Additional siblings are $10/each.
