Creating a Children’s Picture Book – Sharing My Secrets
Book talk with Jan Brett, admired children’s author/illustrator
Saturday, May 13, 2017 | 9:30 am
In this presentation, Jan describes how as a kindergartner she knew she wanted to illustrate children’s books. Her books are often sparked by a compelling experience, such as THE TURNIP which is the basis of this book talk. Jan’s favorite part is sharing some of her drawing tips, along with a lot of encouragement. She does this by creating an illustration from the book, step-by-step, so the children can follow along if they wish. Children are encouraged to bring a pencil and clipboard with paper to make one of their own creations. At the end of her book talk, Jan will sign copies of her books while encouraging children to spend time with their art and writing, for only they can create that special picture or story that reflects their distinct uniqueness. All attendees will receive a free Jan Brett poster. Tickets are currently sold out for this event.
