Program description: Hello, I am an author and illustrator of over 20 children's books. This is how my visits usually evolve: I read from one of my books, show how to turn potato shapes into funny faces, draw a scene suggested by audience and, if time allows, read a bit more. I welcome all questions and comments. This is a very interactive session. It is suitable for all ages but especially good for the very young ones and their parents. Also good for older kids interested in illustration. I would happily consider a session for older kids with emphasis on drawing. I would show some illustrators' simple techniques.
Space/special requirements: I need an easel with sheets of unlined paper.
Travel restrictions: At this point, I prefer locations within 50 miles of Albany.
