Catalanotto, Peter Writing and Illustrating Children's Books Literature- Creative Writing,
Performing Arts- Literary Artists,
Visual Arts- Drawing
In my presentation, I show and explain my creative process from inspiration to finished book. I give the children clear examples of how to get ideas from combining everyday life with imagination and how to develop those ideas. I teach them the critical thinking involved in finding their best ideas—that writing and illustration involves a lot of decision making. I also draw, showing tips and techniques that inspire children to be more creative. Each program is tailored to different grade levels--all age appropriate, so every student leaves my program empowered and inspired to write and draw. Teachers love that much of my program reinforces what they're teaching, yet they also learn new approaches to teaching writing to children. I think it's important to show students what they're learning in school, I use in real life. My website has testimonials from recent visits.
