American Jewish Illustrators in Children’s Literature

January 5 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join us for a fun-filled afternoon as we share some of the most beloved children’s picture books and learn about the incredible illustrators behind them, all American Jews. The illustrations help the text come to life, enhance the story, and spark the imagination. Artist Cathy Miller will help children create an art project using the styles of each of the illustrators discussed. Work Stations will be set-up allowing children to move from one style to the next working in different mediums and creating with different textures and materials. Talking Leaves…Books will have children’s books available for purchase at the event and local artist Jessica Livingston will be available to speak about her illustrations that are on exhibit in the Bunis Family Art Gallery which focus on fairy tales, folklore, and mythology.  Free event open to everyone.
