Virtual Saturday Stories featuring Leo Espinosa
May 20 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Presented monthly, Saturday Stories invites guest illustrators to lead children and their adult companions in a read-aloud workshop related to the wide range of materials and processes that illustrators use to create their picture books.
Meet multi-award winning, Original Art Gold Medalist, illustrator Leo Espinosa! Leo will share a behind the scenes look at how he creates his fantastic illustrations and read from his book, The World Belongs To Us written by best selling author Jacqueline Woodson. Leo will then lead participants in a workshop drawing objects, animals and people from memory, thinking of observation and interpretation as the incredible drawing tools they are! Materials needed are paper and pencils, pens, crayons, color pencils, or whatever you feel comfortable drawing with.
Good for all ages 5 and up.
